When you are in a screen sharing session on MS Teams and you are controlling the users screen and press the C character, the focus of your window will switch to the chat box of teams. This is super annoying to have to click back into the users screen every time. Please fix this.

    @Montgomery, Brian (VEP) ,

    What is your Teams client version?

    I tested in Microsoft Teams Version 1.4.00.16575 (64-bit). It has no impact when I press C character in the keyboard during screen sharing. The following is my steps:

    1. Start a Teams meeting and invite participants.
    2. User01 shares screen and press C character in his keyboard during the period. Nothing happen.
    3. User01 shares screen and Give Control to User02.
    4. User02 press C character in his keyboard during the screen sharing control period. Nothing happen.

    If our steps are different, please show more details to me. I will follow your steps to test this scenario.

    If ours are the same, I want to confirm some questions with you:

    1. Does this problem exist all the time? Or what changes do you do before happened?
    2. Does anyone else have the same problem?
    3. Do you modify the shortcut of Microsoft Teams or some other applications? I check the keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft Teams. There is no C shortcut. So, I’m not sure if you do some modifications.
