Support back/forward mouse buttons in app
It would be great if the desktop app (I'm using Windows) would support back/forward navigation using assigned mouse buttons (usually thumb buttons). This works in web browsers by default, but the desktop app requires clicking the back/forward arrows in the top-left of the interface.

I jump around to quickly reply to one message, then want to get back to what I was doing before.
Having support for a 'back' button on the mouse of keyboard shortcut would really help make the product easier to use. Slack does this so I was used to it before being forced to use MS Teams.

I'd like Alt+Left and Alt+Right. I'm a shortcut junky and semi-disabled with a mouse.

This morning I was screen sharing and controlling a coworker's computer. I accidentally pressed the back button on the mouse, and it kicked me out of the full screen session, and I lost my remote control. Every time this happens I have to re-request control of the remote session.

For me, the 'Alt + Back Arrow/Forward Arrow' navigation does NOT work in teams desktop app for windows.

This occurred to me this morning, this feature works really well in OneNote for example.
Let's say I'm in OneNote working on a page, filling in a list for example - I might need information from a meeting note kept elsewhere in my notebooks - CTRL+E opens global search, I search for the meeting and select the page, next, I copy the information I need and click the back button to go back to my original page - this is so easy and done so frequently, its a habit, its embedded in muscle-memory - I don't even have to think about it. In Teams now, you have to move the mouse.
For now, the 'Alt + Back Arrow/Forward Arrow' works in Teams ( same command as clicking the back-arrow ), but not as many people seem to be aware of navigation shortcuts as they are not as salient as a button.
