We finally have a good deployment package for MS Teams at my work place. The only thing is that One will need to trigger the application after it is installed in order for the program to be registered/recognized by the computer.
That is fine, no problem there. Its a little clunky of a process but it at least installs and un-installs correctly. The problem is, after the program is registered, then when a user logs on the user is automatically prompted to login to Teams.
To correct this I removed the Teams program from the Startup folder in Task Manager. https://www.techrepublic.com/article/get-more-information-on-window-10s-startup-tab-by-enabling-additional-columns/
My question is, how can I force Teams not to start up automatically at login from a registry hack?
But how can I force it not to startup, the above way makes me manually delete the entry. If I force it to be blank then that will automatically stop all apps to auto start. I do not think we want that.
States to use GPO todelete this key:
ollowing is the registry key used in GPO:
Location: User configuration\Preferences\windows settings\registry
Key path: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
Value Name: com.squirrel.Teams.Teams
But we do not use Group Policy at my organization but how can we delete this key from that location so it does not execute? Or...
Force the sestting to not auto start.
