Microsoft Teams stays visible on DisplayFusion taskbar when closed

Hi,

If I have the Microsoft Teams app on my primary monitor and I close it, then the icon is only visible in the systemtray.

But when I have the app on my secundairy monitor (with the DisplayFusion taskbar) it stays visible on the taskbar as well.

Is this a known issue?

Regards Henk

This is indeed on our list to fix up. I've added your info to the open ticket, and we'll be sure to let you know when we've gotten it all sorted out.

Thanks!

It took me a long time to realize that it is not Teams' but DisplayFusion's fault that I am annoyed by that open app on the taskbar on a daily basis. This really needs to be fixed.

We've just released a new DisplayFusion Beta version and this issue should be all fixed up. Please let us know if you run into any trouble after updating.

Thanks!

Hi Keith, that sounds great. But the new beta moves the task to the primary taskbar when closing Teams, or am doing something wrong? If I move the Teams window to the primary Monitor and close it, the task acually moves to the systemtray.

Yep, had one other customer report that as well. I've re-opened the ticket and we'll get that fixed up too. Not sure how I missed that in testing

I can confirm I see the same thing in beta 5

Things are a bit better in Beta 6, but it is still not fixed (or as good as Beta 4). If I have Teams open on a secondary display with a DF taskbar, and its window is maximized, and I am in a meeting watching someone share their screen... if I minimize the window and restore it, the taskbar icon will move to the primary taskbar. When I restore the window (un-maximize) the taskbar icon moves back to the secondary monitor.

Yeah, this as good as we can get it right now. We've looked at the messages sent, the window styles, and anything else we could think of. There's no difference between when Teams is minimized normal, and when it's minimized to tray

Has this been added to any non Beta version?

@Laurie: In 9.7, it should hide the button when it's minimized or closed to tray.

Not sure if this is related... But when I minimize Teams, it disappears from the taskbar (on my right monitor, using 3 multi-monitor setup). I would expect the Teams app would stay in the task bar at least while minimized (similar to how the regular Windows 10 taskbar functions). Its slightly bothersome since I have to click on the small notification icon to re-open it. If I disable DisplayFusion, Windows handles it normally and the app is minimized to the taskbar (with the 'Show Taskbar on All Displays' Win10 option turned on).
Note: it seems to be only Teams with this issue. I can minimize other apps with DisplayFusion fine on my multiple monitors.

Note: I upgraded to the Beta with the same issue. If you can fix this, I'll buy the app

I upgraded to 9.7 and still have the following issue (saem issue as Jake Malone67704. When I minimize Teams, it disappears from the taskbar (on my second monitor, using 2 multi-monitor setup).

The problem with Teams is that there's no difference with regards to the window when it's minimized vs "closed" to the tray. We had a lot of complaints that it wouldn't hide from the taskbar when closed to the tray, so we fixed that, but now it hides when minimized. Fortunately, we added an Advanced Setting to put it back to the old way

In the DisplayFusion Settings > Advanced Settings, enable the "Keep Microsoft Teams on DisplayFusion Taskbar When Minimized" option and you should be all set.

Thanks!

This worked for me. Is this advanced setting only available starting in version 9.7? I need to know so I can get my whole department upgraded if needed since I am the only one on 9.7 now. Thank you

It is only in 9.7 and up, but if you're on 9.6.1, it won't have the change that we made for it, so anyone on 9.6.1 should still have the old behaviour.
