Windows app should stay minimized to system tray
The Windows app keeps appearing as an active app in my app bar, even after I've closed the app so it is only in the Windows system tray.
Apparently receiving a notification causes the app to jump from the system tray to the app bar - and that shouldn't happen.

Yes, it is quite frustrating for the Close button to simply minimize it to the taskbar rather than the system tray, as with most programs with "close button minimizes" behavior (Skype, etc).

Seriously, if I put the app in tray, it SHOULD STAY IN THE **** TRAY. I'm tired of having to repeat the same action every time a notification fires up, I can only imagine how this would look like once the whole company actually starts using Teams.
Fix this behavior or at least give us an option to configure it.
hmmm. it does stay in system tray, and it should promote to app bar on chat notification. Currently if the app is in the system tray, and I receive a chat, i get a popup message, but, if I do not notice this at the time of the popup. there is no visible indication that it needs attention.....
My issue is I can't use the "X" on the upper right to close the main MS Teams window. Clicking it once does nothing for me (seems like a bug).

I had voted for this, then discovered just close the app and it doesn't really close, which is fine for me, it's worth knowing this before you vote. I admit it should do that skype warning thing on close, but hey.

BTW, a simple workaround is to go to `%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup` and set Microsoft Team shortcut to run as *Minimized*.
Microsoft Teams needs a 'Hide when minimized' setting like Task Manager does so it doesn't take up space in the task bar when not being used
