In Microsoft Teams, there are different ways to find, store, and share files to collaborate with others.

Open a file and work with others

  2. Choose where to open a file:

    • Teams (default): Open a file in Teams.

    • Desktop app: Open a file in the desktop version of the app.

    • Browser: Open a file in the browser version of the app.

  3. You can work on a file at the same time as your teammates for real-time collaboration.

   

Turn a file into a tab

  • Go to the file you want and select More attachment options () > Make this a tab.

   

Use the Files tab in a channel
