How to Delete Microsoft Teams on Windows 10 If you downloaded the stand-alone Microsoft Teams app, you can uninstall it as you would remove any program from Windows. However, if you have Microsoft Office installed on your system, the Teams Machine-Wide Installer automatically restores the app when you reboot Windows. To remove both Teams and the Teams Machine-Wide Installer, follow these steps: Right-click the Windows 10 Start menu and select Settings. Select Apps in the Windows Settings. Select Apps & features in the sidebar and search for Teams. Select Microsoft Teams in the search results and then select Uninstall. Select Uninstall again to confirm the deletion. Select Teams Machine-Wide Installer and then select Uninstall twice. If you don't want the program to load every time you start your computer, you can disable Microsoft Teams instead of uninstalling it. How to Uninstall Teams From the Windows Control Panel You can also remove Teams from any version of Windows using the Control Panel. Open the Windows Control Panel and select Programs. Select Uninstall a program. Scroll down and right-click Microsoft Teams. Select Uninstall. Scroll down and right-click Teams Machine-Wide Installer, then select Uninstall. To uninstall Microsoft Teams for Mac, go to your Applications folder and move Microsoft Teams to the Trash. Uninstall Microsoft Teams by Uninstalling Office You can also remove Teams by manually uninstalling Microsoft Office from your PC or running the Office Uninstaller from Microsoft. If you use Microsoft 365 or Microsoft 365 ProPlus for work, Teams might reinstall itself whenever there's an organization-wide software update.
