Custom backgrounds in Microsoft Teams

May 29, 2020

Just a quick blog post today, taking you through how to add a custom background to Microsoft Teams.

Instead of doing something through Teams itself, you need to copy the custom image to the C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds\Uploads folder, obviously replacing YOURUSERNAME with your actual username. Note that if you try to navigate to this folder in file explorer, AppData is a hidden folder so you need to click on View and the Hidden Items checkbox before you can see it.

Once you have added the image to that folder, you can select it in Teams by clicking on the ellipsis during a call and selecting Show Background Effects. You should see a number of possible images, with your custom images at the end.
