Disable opening when right click on system task tray icon
When I right click the system task tray icon, the entire Teams window is opened. Considering that "Open" is an option in the context menu, it doesn't make sense that it's automatically opening. My use-case is that I want to quickly change my status without opening the window but, when I right click to do that, it opens the window anyways. This works as I would expect using Skype for Business and so I think Teams should work the same way.

This bug was reported over a year ago and still not fixed?!!!
I also agree that this "feature" is totally useless and defeats the purpose of NOT opening the interface in order to perform some actions, i.e. updating my status for example.

Yes please. This is a strange non-standard behaviour.

Totally agree. Not logical at all and terribly annoying!
Agreed. Please fix. Very annoying.
This is a very annoying issue indeed... please fix it Microsoft!
Agreed. There's no reason why Teams needs to come into focus when I want to change my status -
There has never been a need for me to jump right into Teams, in any of the times that I've changed my status

Agree, this must be fixed because first, it is super annoying and second, it confronts Windows UX - there is no single program that acts this way, so in sake of uniformity this must be fixed.
Agreed.. Keep the window closed or minimized when changing status from icon tray.
Just started using Teams and this is my first major issue with it, so I agree - please give us an option at least as to whether the window opens on right click or Not. It'd be fine if it defaulted to on, as long as there was a way to turn it off, which is what I would choose. Thank you.

Fully agree! This is very annoying and intrusive. Awfully presumptuous that I am that interested in Teams to fully open the app simply because I r-clicked on the system task tray icon to change my status.
