Microsoft Teams for Windows and macOS gets a new update that lets you quickly access the desktop app’s history or even access full navigation history. It allows you to go back to a page or chat/conversation that you were checking earlier.
Starting with Microsoft Teams v1.4.00.2879, which is now available in the production channel, you can hover over the navigation buttons to open the history menu. The feature is useful if you actively participate in multiple channels or chats and navigate between different pages of Teams.
The history menu in Microsoft Teams can prevent you from repeatedly tapping the back button if you want to navigate to a page you were browsing earlier.
Thanks to this update; users can also access the history menu using the keyboard combination “CTRL + SHIFT + H.” When you’re done, you can simply click on one of the items to go back to the previously visited page.
If you’re using Microsoft Teams, you can open the profile menu and check for updates. After the app is updated and restarted, you must hover over the back or forward button to open navigation history.
Teams Teams pop-out apps in separate windows
In addition to the history menu, Microsoft Teams will also get a new update that allows users to make first- or third-party apps appear in separate windows. The feature is now generally available in the Teams desktop app.
As you may know, Teams already allows users to open chats, meetings, or calls in separate windows (outside the primary Teams window). Users can also resize the app if necessary.
The same feature is now available for Teams-based apps and the channel. For an app to appear in Teams, you may need to open the navigation pane and click the pop-out option, as shown in the screenshot above.
