Application preferences on Mac
There are no application preferences on the Mac desktop app. I would like to be able to configure both the location for downloaded files, and the font & size for usability reasons. (I'm sure there are others.)
The standard hotkey is Cmd-comma (','). Preferences are normally presented in a separate window, though some applications like Google Chrome show preferences in a new tab instead, which would be acceptable in this case.
Please add a preferences tab or window, and include both download location preference (like Slack does), and font settings.
Teams was a bunch of garbage put together quickly because MS was losing market share to Zoom and Webex and couldn't buy them
This is the least "Mac" of the Office Mac apps. Please use built-in OS features (like "Preferences" in the application menu) to provide an experience Mac users are used to.

At least the cmd+, shortcut is now available since https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18718825-reinstate-macos-default-interactions-keyboard-sho
However, the MS Teams Menu in the macOS status bar still lacks the preferences entry.
It looks very much to me that Teams makes its own way without using the basic OS?
If I close a window, I can't get back into a team!

It looks like the Mac version was written in Electron which means it doesn’t take advantage of many of the platforms’ basic features and interaction models (like properly formatted floating Preferences window, menu bar options), as well as making it more battery- and resource-hungry. I think it was a short-sighted and user-hostile (or at least user-careless) decision.

Insane to me this didn't come standard. Why would you make an app on OSX and not have preferences follow the OS standard?
