• MS TEAMS – is it really a team player?

    I run Win 11 Pro and have both MS 365 and Office Home/Family with 3 installed user machines.  Prior to retirement earlier this year, my employer switched to Teams for all collaboration and it worked great in the business environment.  Microsoft pushes Teams for everyone and I have it “installed” on my personal machines as part of my Office subscription.  However I cannot figure out how to make it work.  Every attempt to use it results in a message such as “You cannot sign into Teams with a personal MS account”.  So how is an individual supposed to take advantage of Teams as MS markets…?  (Please don’t say use Skype, I won’t!).  There must be a solution!  Hopefully I don’t need to set up a domain server in my house!!

      Can you sign in at https://teams.microsoft.com?

      Does your Microsoft Account use a Microsoft-supplied email address?

      I just signed in to Teams on the desktop app and the web site with a family/personal Microsoft 365 account, so there’s no general exclusion (but I did have to add six trusted sites for the web version).

      Windows 11 Pro version 22H2 build 22621.1192 + Microsoft 365/Edge

        You can’t use FF for logging into Teams. Edge works and I think other Chromium browsers.

        I can use a browser to get Teams, but as  @wsthewrighthouse says, trying to use the desktop version isn’t possible. I have to revert to the cut down (free) version. It says in Office home that you can use the desktop version, but it would seem you can’t.
