How To Remove The Faq In Microsoft Teams Landing Page

How To Articles

As someone who uses Microsoft Teams frequently, I recognize the significance of personalizing the landing page to suit one’s individual needs. The FAQ section is a common feature on the landing page, offering useful information and responses to frequently asked questions. However, if the FAQ section is not applicable to your work style or you prefer a cleaner interface, you may wish to eliminate it. This article will walk you through the steps of removing the FAQ from the landing page of Microsoft Teams.

Step 1: Accessing the Customization Options

To remove the FAQ section, you need to access the customization options in Microsoft Teams. Here’s how:

  1. Open Microsoft Teams and sign in to your account.
  2. Click on your profile picture or initials in the top right corner of the screen.
  3. From the dropdown menu, select “Settings”.
  4. In the Settings window, click on the “General” tab.
  5. Scroll down until you find the “Application” section.

Step 2: Configuring App Preferences

Once you have accessed the Application section in the Settings window, you can proceed with the configuration:

  1. Locate the “Open application in” dropdown menu.
  2. By default, it is set to “Chat”, change it to “Activity” if it’s not already selected.
  3. Scroll down further until you find the “Default landing page” section.
  4. Click on the dropdown menu and select “Activity”.

By changing the default landing page to “Activity”, you will remove the FAQ section from the landing page and replace it with the activity feed.

Step 3: Save the Changes

Once you have made the necessary changes, it’s time to save them:

  1. Scroll to the bottom of the Settings window.
  2. Click on the “Save” button to apply the changes.

After saving the changes, the next time you open Microsoft Teams, you will notice that the FAQ section is no longer present on the landing page. Instead, the activity feed will be displayed, providing you with a cleaner and more focused interface.


Removing the FAQ section from the Microsoft Teams landing page can help declutter your workspace and provide a more streamlined experience. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily customize your landing page to suit your preferences. Enjoy a cleaner interface and stay focused on your tasks with Microsoft Teams.
