I am currently preparing to roll out Teams across the board but the Machine Wide Installer does not want to play nice with OneDrive Known Folder Move. I have Silent Auto Login and Files on Demand turned on for the machines which works as expected, but since installer runs on login when sitting at a new machine, the Teams installs, creates desktop shortcut, then OneDrive KFM does it thing and copies the shortcut to OneDrive. Next machine same thing but since the shortcut is created on the fly, OneDrive see's it as a new file, and we now have "Microsoft Teams - Copy" which repeats over and over unless the user manually deletes them. Is there a way to disable shortcut creation with the machine wide installer to prevent this feature and I simply create a shortcut in public\desktop during install script? Any other viable fixes would be welcome.

@Byron Lipscomb  Same problem is here. I even sent a request to Autopilot team - no answer from there... Edge behaviour is the same, but at least there is a documented registry hack I am trying now...
