Microsoft/Office 365 rename

Going live tomorrow (21st April 2020) Microsoft are renaming some of the Office 365 and Microsoft 365 products. I guess this is what happens when the marketing department have too much time on their hands.

They are bringing all the Business Office 365 range into a Microsoft 365 naming convention.

Microsoft Teams Background

Microsoft have launched an update to Teams that allows you to change your background. But what if you don’t want to use one of their preinstalled images?

Simply copy the image of your choice to:

%appdata%\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds\Uploads

And it will be available to choose.

If % appdata% doesn’t work then it will be something like:

C:\Users\adam\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds\Uploads

Now you can appear in lockdown meetings as if you are at your favourite place.
