After you've installed teams, you will need to make sure that Teams has access to the microphone & camera, as well as Accessibility & Screen Recording options. Follow the steps below to make sure that Teams has access.
First, Open up Microsoft Teams
Teams should already be installed on your machine. If not, follow this article.
|1. Up the top-right hand corner of your Teams window, click on the little picture of you or your initials:|
|2. From the menu that pops up, click on Settings.|
|3. In the settings menu, click on the Devices tab.|
|4. You should see a pop-up ask for permission for your Camera. Click OK. You'll then see a pop-up asking for permission to use your Microphone. Click OK on this too.|
|5. You should also find that when sharing your screen in a Teams Meeting or call (this button ) you are prompted to enable Screen Sharing & Accessibility options. Click OK for both fo those too.|
