Team Custom Background

Last week, Microsoft began rolling out a feature where users can change their background. Super helpful if you’ve got kids running around in the background (or just have a really messy office). To change your background when you’re in a call, click the 3 ellipses shown below, and select “show background effects.”

You’ll see a bunch of options on the right side of Teams – just choose one and click “apply.”

But what if you wanted to use your OWN photos for a background? Thankfully there’s a simple workaround for that.

1) On your keyboard, hit “Windows + R.”

2) In the run box, copy and paste this line “%AppData%\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds\Uploads”

3) Click “OK.”

4) Drag and drop your custom images into the folder

5) Start up Teams and enjoy your new backgrounds!
