How do I stop Teams from starting on its own?

Disabled it in startup.

Disabled it from app settings.

Nothing helps :(

Hi,

I'm Rodell, Independent Advisor and a Microsoft User like you. Let me help you out with your concern.

If you're using Windows 10:
To stop Teams from launching automatically, click on Start / Settings / Apps / Startup. Turn off Microsoft Teams.

For MS Teams settings:
Settings. Uncheck Auto-start application. While you’re there, also uncheck On close, keep the application running and Register Teams as the chat app for Office.

Launch the Task Manager, click the “Startup” tab, locate “Microsoft Teams” in the list, and click “Disable.”

Let me know if that worked out well for you. Feel free to ask me if you need further assistance.

Regards,
Rodell

Hi,

There are multiple uservoices of disabling the start up option, such as this

There is one here to turn off autostart for the entire tenant which may be closer to what you need.

If these don't cover exactly what you need I would raise this as a new uservoice. To note however, it could be some time to get picked up and really, I think the general desire from organisations to use Teams is more to have autostart on by default rather than off.

Hey Rodell,

I looked at those articles you mentioned, they are talking about some policy.

I don't think I understand it.

Any easy way out?

Hi,

There are a lot of users too experiencing this. Since Teams don’t have yet the permanent solution for this, that is why these articles are being raised for up votes. Apologize if this doesn’t work out for you.

Yes you can try to reinstall and clear cache the MS Teams.
