Notifications are not coming to the front
I'm using Teams Windows desktop client.
Since a few Weeks ago there is an old problem from spring 2020 in the notifications. If another application is set maximized, the notifications for new messages or incoming calls notification are not appearing on top. Without my speakers i wouldn't recognize an incoming call. I'm working remote via Windows RDP and face this problem every day -_-
And I am not the only affected user...there are currently houndreds of affected user - look in the comments of the old bug reports:
Please solve it asap! Thanks!
Same over here. Always when working on RDP, popup is there but hides behind other windows.

I also experience this when whenever anybody calls as I work on RDP and have Teams running locally. Very annoying!

Its really stopping adoption of Teams through the firm.

I have the same problem, but the notification seems to be appearing in the far-right desktop (use ctrl+win+right to move or win+tab to show an overview). Teams doesnt seem to recognise which desktop Im currently using, but always shows the notification on the most right.

Same here - it's been like this for months. Very annoying. When I'm in a full screen Remote Desktop session, the notification is right at the very back of all the windows and I've got to minimize everything to get to it to answer the call.
Same here, many random people have this issue in my organisation, is there any workaround we can do in the meantime?
+1...multiple people in my organization are having this issue currently as well. All Teams windows (other than the main window) only appear underneath everything else on the system.
We also have users experiencing this.
Agreed! Please fix this, it is my main issue with using Teams right now. Beyond frustrating to have to answer the call in my iOS app, then find the right chat group on the desktop app so I can join the ongoing call and hang up on my phone.
It should not be this complicated!
we also have this issue on all Users in Terminal/Citrix Sessions... very annoying
Same here. Reinstall and clean User Data did not solve the Problem.
Agreed! found this thread off of one of the above threads. Really annoying and just not great having to minimise everything to answer the call.
