Show, Hide, or Pin Teams and Channels

User needs to pin a channel on Microsoft Teams.


 


Hide Teams or Channels

If you don't want a team or channel to show in your teams list, hide it. Go to a team or channel name and select More options  > Hide (you can also right-click on the team or channel to open More options). This is a great way to clean up your list and focus on the teams and channels you're active in.

 

Show Teams or Channels

When you join a new team, it's automatically shown in your teams list. If you know you're a member of a team but don't see it, scroll to the bottom of your teams list and select Hidden teams, find the team you're looking for select More options  > Show (you can also right-click on the team or channel to open More options).

You can also show channels from the hidden channels menu beneath the channels list of a team. Select More options  > Show (you can also right-click on the team to open More options).

Note: To help get you up and running, Teams automatically shows the five most popular channels in every new team you join.

 

Pin or Unpin Channels

Stay productive with pinned channels! Pinned channels stay at the top of the list so you don’t have to hunt them down.

 

To pin a channel, go to a channel name and select More options  > Pin (you can also right-click on the channel to open More options). This ensures that the channel stays at the top of your list. If you change your mind, just select it again and unpin it. Once you pin a channel, drag it into the order you want. Do this for several channels and you'll have all pinned channels within easy reach.
