How to mute and unmute other people in a Microsoft Teams meeting

When in a Microsoft Teams Meeting, the more people added into the call usually translates into more noise and confusion.

To Mute a Specific Member of Your Microsoft Teams Meeting:

  1. Click on their name on the right side of the screen and select Mute Participant (or unmute if they are already muted)

  2. If a user is muted, they receive a notification letting them know.  They can unmute themselves if they need to be heard.

(NOTE: In any Microsoft Teams Meeting with more than 5 people, any users who join after the meeting has started will join as muted.)
