    Good Morning,

    Is it possible to let the MacBook open Teams on MacOS when clicking on a meeting link in the Windows VM? I don't want to do that for all internet URL's but only for Teams meetings.

    Hello, you can try to click on "open with" and make your application as default.
    Please let us know if it's not that case.

    You didn't find Teams for Mac on the Windows side?
    Did you share your applications between Mac and VM?

    Maybe I can follow up on that because it's exactly my problem, as well. Applications are shared.
    When opening Windows System Settings, Apps, Standard-Apps per Protocol, you can find this:

    (Sorry for the German language)

    You can only choose between Microsoft Teams (which is the Windows client) and "Search for an app in Microsoft Store". Unfortunately, here's no option to "Open in Mac" nor to choose the Mac Teams client.
    For me, this is quite an issue because I have to open a dozen meetings every day. Currently, I have to right click the link, copy the hyperlink and paste it into any MacOS browser to have it being opened in the Mac client. And even then sometimes the Windows client is launched instead.
    Help would be highly appreciated.

    Best regards,

    Henning

    No option yet without settings all links to open in Mac. Moved the thread to the feature suggestion forum to take a look at it.

    funnily enough I have the opposite problem: I'm trying to workout how to STOP Teams in Windows, under Parallels, opening up the Teams for Mac OS app.
    e.g. when I click on a meeting and try to join, it starts the Mac OS Teams app. I can't see anywhere in the Parallels Configuration or Settings to change this.
    This suggests that there IS an option somewhere to configure how to handle Teams actions.
    I suspect that the fix to your problem will be the same place to fix my problem.
    Appreciate any pointers.

    I should have added that Teams for Mac opens if I click on "Join" from either the alert notification or if I'm in Calendar view and click on the "join" button in the top-right of the calendar item. Note that when I do this I'm not actually opening the calendar item. If I open the calendar item and click on the meeting link then it opens in Teams for Windows.
    I'm thinking that although our scenarios are polar opposites, it must be the same control point / configuration that manages that behaviour?
