Create & Add a custom background for your Microsoft Teams Meetings

By now you should know how amazing #MicrosoftTeams is. But have you figured out how to change your custom background into your own chosen image? Let me show you how easy that can be!


First use the functionality

You have to first use it before it creates an “upload” folder you can use. When you’re in the meeting, make sure your camera is switched on, click on the ellipses (…) and go to Show Background Effects. There you will see the backgrounds added by Microsoft, as well as yours at the bottom (eventually). Choose an image and apply to test.

Now let’s go load that custom picture:

Navigate to this folder on your PC:  C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds\Uploads

Keep in mind that these folders are probably hidden, so change your view to show hidden folders.

You will load the images in this “Upload” folder. there are image guidelines (1920 x 1080 pixels) but I can’t say I’ve worried too much about this. Just make sure that it’s landscape!

When you test it, the image will be reversed, but it will display right for the attendees, so don’t worry about that.

Here’s a great article for some inspiration , but why don’t you just search for your favourite game or sitcom series set / background? Or design a cool image using #PowerPoint Design Ideas?

Enjoy!! 🙂

#Microsoft365 Day 312: Using Ink to Text in #PowerPoint

Ink to Text in #PowerPoint will convert your handwriting to text. It actually works really great. I tried it by writing with my finger on the screen and with my pen. Think this will be great on my Surface Pro as I can turn my screen down like a book.
