This item is not currently under consideration, though multi-window is the works.

Please keep the feedback coming and I will keep bringing it to the feature team for review.

Thank you!

    @Warren: in Skype for Business, we could press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+3 to Open the Skype for Business Main form, then do search for colleague name, then chat **without having my finger off the keyboard**.
    But for TEAMS, I must grab the mouse, then double click on taskbar icon, IMHO, the above global hotkey is better.
