Completely Nuke Microsoft Teams

I left my old organization and now Microsoft Teams is stuck in the old organization and I cannot log into a personal account nor a different organizational account. I have this issue with the app and web browsers I have used. I even tried clearing all cookies for the web browser. I don’t really care about the browsers, but if I could nuke everything from the app and connect with a new account that would sort everything out for me. I am currently using a browser in private mode.

Completely Nuke Microsoft

Probably would be a better option!
I’d also burn my drives in microwave and bought new ones, just in case…



For the web browser, you can delete cache and cookies.

I did that and I am still stuck in the old organization. I am using vivaldi as my web browser.

I don’t use Teams so this might not be relevant but I wonder if you could delete/rename its config files/folders and start the app again on a “clean slate”, would that help?

Where would those config files be?

If you’re running sync in Vivaldi, that might be the reasson. Check what you got synked.

Installing a new borg-friendly browser, such as chrome, chromium, brave, opera, edge, etc. etc. might actually be of a help-in-hand, when in a borg-need…

In your home directory, press Ctrl-H to make visible hidden files/folders.
Have a look around in there and also in .config directory.

First kill all processes for Teams.

Then uninstall Teams with pacman.

Lastly, look for a directory named “teams” or “microsoft” or something like that inside ~/.config. Delete all of that.

To make sure everything is purged, inside your home directory, execute this:

find . -iname '*teams*'

If you find anything else belonging to teams, delete it.


Crazily enough after deleting the config there and /usr/share/teams it still goes to the old organization portal.

Then you didn’t do what I said. First kill it, then uninstall it, then delete all config inside your home directory. Make sure everything is deleted.

Only then you can reinstall it.

You did it all wrong…

First you should do:




Turns out there were more than one directories with configs!

Sneaky bugger… Who knows, maybe it left a bunch of viruses and spyware on your machine as well..? I never trust Micro$oft. Just because I’m paranoid doesn’t mean I’m necessarily wrong.
