Hi guys,

I am new to this forum but need some help. I am creating an image for my organization, and as part of that image I need teams. I downloaded all of my office apps from the office website using my account so when they all opened, they had my email auto filled in the sign in box. I have removed that from every app except teams and I cannot seem to make it go away. I have tried clearing all of the cache from the app data folder, uninstalled teams fully, and logged in and out as a different user account. 

 

If anyone has any suggestion, please help.

I found the following article that worked for me. 

 

If users are signed in to a domain-joined computer and don't want their user name pre-populated on the Teams sign-in screen, admins can set the following Windows registry to turn off pre-population of the user name:

 

Create the following Windows Registry Value - 

(UPN) Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Teams SkipUpnPrefill(REG_DWORD) 0x00000001 (1).

 

Steps to create registry setting;

  • Open Registry Editor - Start -> Regedit
  • Browse to Registry Folder
    • Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Teams
  • Right click to create NEW value - Create DWORD (32-Bit) Value
    • Type the following value name = SkipUpnPrefill
    • Value Data = 1
    • Click Ok to save
  • Close Registry Editor (Note:You can choose to leave it open but I recommend  that you close the Registry Editor once your done editing or have confirmed your edit). 

Hope this helps,
