Is it possible (or is there a uservoice) to set the Teams desktop client to go to the Activity tab then with a blank right hand panel when it opens for the first time on a machine boot after being closed (not just minimised) rather than going to the last Chat or other part of the system you were on? There are times where I need to open teams during presentations or when there are other people looking at the screen where I may have been having a sensitive conversation that I wouldn't want the application to open up on.

Hi @Timothy Merridew

Uservoice here:


I have just voted for it. I agree that with sensitive and corporate content it can't just be exposed when opening the app. I am at risk of this too when training.

Hope that answers your question!

Best, Chris

Thanks for that, I've voted as well.
