How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Improve Install options - Install for all users and install location

Raising this again as Microsoft closed the previous request, saying it was complete even though it was not. (link below)

Teams should install to the program files directory, not the users AppData.

And NO, the answer is not to put a copy of the MSI in Pogram Files and deploy to the users AppData when they login.

        While its great that they did implement an MSI installer it does not only "install once" its puts the application in Program Files but still creates a ton of per user garbage. Please fix this broken architecture so it truly is only installed once per machine.

        agree, please reopen and fix the application so it installs for all users on the machine and stores data only (not executables) in the appdata folder

        Thank you for raising this again. Closing the last issue and ignoring the problem is not a solution!
