Manually hide / display the horizontal control bar
Would you please add a function to manually hide / display the horizontal control bar.
I am aware if you don't move your mouse the control bar hides however there are many occasions during a meeting that a user has to and more often than not the control bar obstructs what the user is required to see.

PLEASE! I usually keep the text chat open while watching presentations, and the control bar hides stuff all of the darn time.
I often find that content is annoyingly covered by the control bar, and any cursor movement at all (even if outside of the Teams window) make it show up. It also takes too long for the control bar to hide/disappear when the cursor stops moving.
It would be extremely beneficial to be able to hide/un-hide the bar.

The Teams control bar being hard-coded and immovable in the middle of the screen makes zero sense for an application that has any consideration of sharing video or screen content. It covers up an unacceptable amount of the shared content.
At a minimum it should be movable; ideally it should be able to be minimized.

I really hate it! It is a big problem because I can’t see properly videos, people and presentations!
At a minimum let us move it around on the screen. Thanks!!!

echo all the other comments - very frustrating
I am surprised this is not a bigger ask. I cannot fully see what is being presented with this. I would like it to be able to move it and make it disappear.
Couldn't the control bar doc (sleep) on lower toolbar? Or, Control Bar pops up when you hover over the bottom left of the screen. Unfortunately, this might be an issue during software training where mouse clicks are needed.

Allow it to be dragged to another screen / location so that it is out of the way or minimize it.
Even when I move the mouse off the teams window and don't touch it for 60 seconds, the control bar keeps showing. Really annoying on a text-heavy slide where it's completely blocking content.
Many of us have this issue also. We just want to hide the control bar and focus on the video.
