Start Teams in background for organisation

Teams automatically starting with a popup window is very inconvenient for our users. We would much rather have it start minimized.
How do I change the default option for "Start Teams in Background" to be enabled by default for our entire organisation?

You will need to update the corresponding setting in the desktop-config JSON file, see for example here: https://devblogs.microsoft.com/scripting/configuring_startup_settings_in_microsoft_teams_with_windows_powershell/

Hi @DuncanvanRooij-7258,

The setting for the "Start Teams in Background" option is stored in the desktop-config JSON file which by default located at %AppData%\Microsoft\Teams\desktop-config.json. And the corresponding part is as highlighted below("openAsHidden":true,"):

So agree with michev that you would need to try configuring the setting using powershell.
