How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

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.

    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.
