MS Teams Machine Wide Installation - Start menu Item for MS Teams Missing

I'm rolling out a pilot of MS teams and using the machine wide installer (version 1.6 which is latest at time of writing). This is working fine and when a user logs into their Windows 10 22 H2 desktop the MS teams desktop application starts automatically. One thing we notice though is there is no Start menu item for MS Teams. Is this expected?

    Hi @shockoMS

    Please try restarting your computer after installation to see if Teams appears in the start menu.

    If the above method doesn't work, you can install using the old MSI file and update to the latest version (this is possible if you haven't disabled automatic updates).
