Microsoft Teams is now installed on Lecture computers, within lecture theatres and classroom spaces, as part of the switch to Teams calling.
How do I stop Microsoft Teams from loading automatically each time?
By default, Teams won't open automatically on Lecture computers unless you have already opened it manually via the desktop or start menu shortcuts.
If you find that teams is now opening automatically, but wish turn off this functionality, please follow these steps:
- Click on the three little dots at the top of the Teams window, and choose "Settings".
- On the General tab in the settings window, scroll down and you should see the section called "Application. Within this, untick the the option that says "Auto-start application".
- Close Teams completely, by right clicking on the Teams icon in the taskbar and choose "Quit".
- When you next reload Teams, the setting will be applied successfully.
How do I set myself as "Do not disturb" to stop notifications while I am teaching?
