Hello,

 I have a couple of Surface Hubs (V1) in my organization. For the last several months, I have been fighting a problem where the Teams app goes to the foreground and I cannot open anything else, at least not in the foreground. I have tried re-imaging and tried it on 2 different hubs. I can alt-tab and see the apps, but if I select them, it just goes back to the teams screen. I cannot get to settings without rebooting, but the first time someone miracasts or opens a Teams meeting, Teams is right back in the foreground. This persists through different sessions as well. 

 

Are there any fixes for this, or are we just doing something wrong?

Hello @bcdudley,

 

Are you sure it's Teams and not Skype for Business? If the later, this is a known issue and a fix is currently delivered in Windows Insider Preview. It would be great if you could test it out.

Alternatively, when the issue happens, you can hit Alt +F4 on your keyboard to close Skype for Business and use the device

If it's indeed Teams, please open a support ticket to investigate

 

Thank you,

Cezar
