If you’re using Microsoft Teams, you have likely interacted
with the ‘Profile’ menu in the title bar of the app. By
default, Microsoft Teams title bar comes with your profile icon
which lets you access your organization/personal account,
settings, and more.
All the important features of the app can be found under the
general settings tab of Microsoft Teams. From there, you can
modify your audio, video and change hardware settings. You can
also turn off hardware acceleration, disable Teams from launch
on the startup of your PC and more.
In addition to these settings, users also need to interact with
the profile menu to access their organization settings and
switch between accounts.
Microsoft is now moving Settings, Keyboard Shortcuts, About,
Check for updates, and other desktop client-specific options
from the profile menu to a new menu in the title bar.
The existing profile menu will be focused on account management
and it will allow you to switch to another account or tenant.
As part of the update, Microsoft is moving the following
options out of the current profile menu into a new menu in the
same title bar:
- Zoom Controls: This allows you to adjust the layout of the
Team’s interface by zooming in and zooming out.
- Settings: Links to the General, Devices, Notifications, and
- About: Shows the version of Teams desktop client.
- Check for updates.
In the Microsoft 365 Admin Center, Microsoft confirmed that it
will begin rolling out the feature to users in late
January and offer new documentation for training early next
Early next year, Microsoft is also planning to begin rolling
out the new
low-data usage mode for users that have limited or slow
internet. The new low-data usage mode will allow you to cap
the bandwidth usage and help you conduct meetings even when
you’ve limited mobile data.
