    Thanks Leon, this works as a short-term solution. Unfortunately the main time this problem happens for me is when I'm in the middle of a chat or video call where restarting the whole application is even more of a hassle.

    Has there been any update on this? It is very annoying and the only "fix" I've found is restarting the app (which only works until a new notification comes up).

    Yes, this problem is so annoying. I found there is always an invisible teams window (within the application) designed to render notifications alongside the main window which holds the chat interface. I've been constantly frustrated by this invisible window taking focus instead of the main window.

    For example:

    I'm chatting with someone and mid conversation need to alt-tab to another application to check on something. When I command-tab back to the application, the app looks like it has focus and the cursor is blinking in the chat input box, but I can't type anything.

    As it turns out, the Teams app has focus but it's actually this invisible notifications window which has focus. I can click anywhere on the teams window to give the main window focus and can continue my conversation.

    How hard is it to ensure the main window gets focus and perhaps only give this notifications window focus when a notification occurs?

    An even better solution would be to remove this window entirely and use the built in notifications system offered by MacOS so that OS level features like "Do not disturb" work as you would expect.

    This happens to me using the Teams App on OSX. Often I'll be in the middle of typing a message and need to switch to a different window to refer to something (using ⌘-Tab), and when I switch back the focus is not on the chat anymore. It's very annoying, especially since the cursor is still blinking in the chat box, making me expect that it is the focus.

    Edit:
    Ok, so it looks like there was another Teams window (called "Microsoft Teams Notification") that was taking focus every time I switched back to the app. I'm not sure where this window was (couldn't see it anywhere, close it, or minimize it), but once I restarted the app it was gone. Not really a complete solution because it could come back, but the focus is working right for now.
