    Hi @Lindsay Makin

    Flickering in Microsoft Teams can be caused by a number of things, including outdated graphics drivers, conflicting applications, or issues with the Teams app itself. Here are a few things you can try to fix the issue:

    1. Update your graphics drivers: Go to your computer manufacturer's website or the graphics card manufacturer's website to download and install the latest drivers.
    2. Check for conflicting applications: Check to see if any other applications are running that may be causing conflicts with Teams. Try closing any unnecessary applications and see if the flickering stops.
    3. Clear the Teams cache: Close Teams and delete the cache files located in the following folder: %appdata%\Microsoft\Teams.
    4. Reinstall Teams: Uninstall Teams and then download and reinstall the latest version from the Microsoft website.
