How To Diable Microsoft Teams From Startup

Productivity Software

Being a frequent user of Microsoft Teams, I am familiar with the inconvenience of it automatically launching every time you power up your computer. For me, I prefer having more autonomy over which applications start up, which is why I chose to deactivate the automatic startup of Microsoft Teams. In this article, I will walk you through the step-by-step process of disabling Microsoft Teams from launching at startup.

Step 1: Open the Task Manager

To begin, press the Ctrl, Shift, and Esc keys simultaneously to open the Task Manager. Alternatively, you can right-click on the taskbar and select “Task Manager” from the menu that appears.

Step 2: Navigate to the Startup tab

Once the Task Manager is open, navigate to the “Startup” tab. This tab displays a list of all the applications that are configured to start up automatically when you log in to your computer.

Step 3: Locate Microsoft Teams in the Startup tab

In the Startup tab, locate Microsoft Teams from the list of applications. You can find it by scrolling through the list or by using the search bar at the top right corner of the Task Manager window.

Step 4: Disable Microsoft Teams from startup

Once you have located Microsoft Teams in the Startup tab, right-click on it and select “Disable” from the context menu. This will prevent Microsoft Teams from starting up automatically the next time you log in to your computer.

It’s important to note that disabling Microsoft Teams from startup does not uninstall the application or prevent you from using it. It simply prevents it from launching automatically when you start your computer.


Disabling Microsoft Teams from startup can help you have more control over your computer and improve your startup time. By following the simple steps outlined in this article, you can easily prevent Microsoft Teams from starting up automatically and choose when to launch the application according to your needs.
