Is there a way to keep more than one channel open using multiple windows?

That would be really useful and save a lot of time in moving/copying files, documents and working in two teams at a time.

Hi,

As of writing this, it's currently not possible to have multiple instances of Microsoft Teams client running.

A request was to be able to have multiple chat windows open at the same time, and this feature was implemented by allowing pop-out chat windows (although this isn't what you're asking for).

Your query is also discussed over here:

You can submit feedback about this over at the Microsoft Teams uservoice over here:
https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/

There might already be such suggestions, so you can search first if there are any.


(Please don't forget to accept helpful replies as answer)

Best regards,
Leon

Hi,
a possible workaround is to use the Teams Client and also Teams into a web browser, you can use them as separated client, so you can open a Channel in the Teams PC Client and a different Channel on the Teams into the Browser.
Best.

Hi BasmaMahbub-9329!

As Leon said above, Microsoft Teams is not support have more than one channel open in client.

If you need these functions, we recommend you vote for it in this link (https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/40463074-multiple-windows-for-channels). Microsoft will always focus on customer’s feedback and experience, some new features would be added to the services based on customers' feedback in the future, and your good ideas will be very helpful for them to improve the service.

Your time, understanding and cooperation will be highly appreciated!
