Disable startup option
Like Skype, it would be great if there was a setup option to not start on Windows Startup. Reason being, when on laptop, do not want lots of applications running that I dont need when on battery power. Saves time and frustration to not have these applications autostart. I can start them when I need them but not before.
Any update on this? We need this ASAP.

Teams is great if it meets an organization's needs. Active Directory is great is it meets an organization's needs.
Teams is a PITA (Pain In The A??) if it does not meet an organization's needs. A method to disableTeams that works only in an AD environment is a useless PITA if the organization does not use AD.
SO MAKE A NON-AD DEPENDENT WAY TO DISABLE TEAMS ONCE AND FOR ALL.

Users getting very fed up with Teams reappearing. It needs an option to allow autotstar to be disabled.

Teams Autostart is a security risk. We are a healthcare organization. Several of our users have exposed their password into random teams chats because teams launches and takes focus while they are logging into their EHR session. The fact that we can't turn this off at an enterprise level is a huge vulnerability

I have disabled MS Teams autostart in Teams itself, and in settings, yet it STILL autostarts.
This is incredibly annoying.
My laptop is for personal use only. I use neither Teams nor Skype. There absolutely should be an option to prevent them from loading on startup. Please fix this. Its obnoxious to have to go through the routine of turning them off every time I restart.
I have to go into my system settings every time I have used Teams to disable autostart. Please fix this. This is so annoying. I only use Teams while working from home, when I am not working I don't want Teams to start. Enabling autostart should only be a (checked out) option during install. Not every time you start the program, this is acting like malware.
I am running Linux, please fix!

Tina and anonymous - it works great to remove Teams from Startup applications (Ubuntu), disabling Teams at startup. That is, until I manually start Teams to attend a meeting. After starting Teams, it changes the settings of Startup applications to include Teams. It is not a nice behaviour of an app to change system settings.
Can't believe this still hasn't been changed!
Microsoft 2 years later...
Please continue to express your feedback on uservoice.
OK... No program should auto-start without explicit permission from the end user.
And admins should have control on such a basic functionality.
If it doesn't happen in 2020 when Microsoft is pushing Teams left and right due to an increase in "work from home", what chance do we have?
it looks like malware, it behaves like malware... well... teams is just malware. unfortunately, my university requires that for meetings. i hope the GDPR will destroy this piece of malware at least in the EU. microshit, go and die. this teams crap not only segfaults in the background (which opens doors to any attacker), no, its impossible to stop it from adding it to autostart on LINUX!
By DEFAULT, Microsoft Teams SHOULD NOT be started automatically on Linux!
I wonder what other Microsoft-knows-better-than-you things are hidden in Teams.
Shame on you, Microsoft team.
For Linux Lite:
Menu>Session and Startup>
Click the "Application Autostart" Menu
Uncheck "Microsoft Teams"

It's been two years. As much as I agree with this, I think we're all going to have to let it go or figure out how to uninstall it without uninstalling the other Office programs.

Would also make me feel better, if I know I can trust an application to only listen on the mic or use the camera, when **I** need it... From me experience using Teams it feels like Lock-in-ware and like spy-ware. Not comfortable. Unfortunately kids require it for school. Makes me feel even more uncomfortable... Why can't MS make any unintrusive software?

And even the teams application on Linux starts on login, WTF? The reason people move to NON MS platforms is because you do really annoying things and don';t listen to the users. OPT IN to auto start up, don't just do it, ya ain't nike.
Seriously it's a company wide issue with MS, pop-ups, auto start, dialogs all over the joint that steal input and hide behind windows.... I could go on, but that would be a rant.
It's so annoying.
