Kill Microsoft Teams from launching itself during startup

While Microsoft Teams is a useful tool for connecting with people remotely, there’s one major annoyance associated with the video conferencing tool. It’s configured to launch automatically on PC start-up. As such, it might slow down your PC. Stopping the app may help your PC boot up faster at launch. If you agree, let’s see how to disable it on startup.

  1. Click the Windows icon on the Taskbar. When a window opens, select the Settings icon visible as the cog-wheel icon.
