I want MS teams to be my default chat app but everyday after log out, the settings are changed and Zoom chat becomes my default app. Every day I have to go to MS teams settings and change it as default app, restart entire MS office apps.

I have contacted my IT team and they uninstalled and reinstalled the MS teams app. but still it doesn't work. I have Microsoft Teams Version 1.5.00.11163 (64-bit). It was last updated on 05-May-22. rest of the MS office apps like outlook and others are microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise, version 2201 (build 14827.20220 microsoft enterprise channel)

Please help suggesting a permanent fix how I can ensure MS teams stays as my default chat application. I don't have skype on my laptop with below windows installed.

    So, you can either go to privacy settings/MIC privacy settings.

    But as @Nivedipa-MSFT stated previously, the primary support are the ones given just in case.

    Try that and let us know if that did work : )
