Microsoft Teams: Suppress Annoying Message Pop-ups

KB ID 0001722


Wow! Who at Microsoft Teams thought that enabling that by default was a good idea? I was on a large conference call this morning, (about 150 people). Every message to the message feed was spewing onto my screen and making a noise during the meeting!

Stop Microsoft Teams Popup Chat Notifications

Thought: Why do ALL developers think it’s a good idea to have pop-up banner massages appear top right of the screen, (where your windows control buttons and things live), why not bottom right?

Anyway, I want them off completely, (if I want to read the messages I’ll open the message feed window!)
