How To Fix Microsoft Teams Stuck on Loading

When you launch Microsoft Teams, you see a start-up screen that shows “Loading Microsoft Teams” at the bottom left. It pops up for a few seconds before you either see the login screen, or you’re taken to the Microsoft Teams interface if you’re already signed in.

Microsoft Teams may remains stuck on the loading screen for a long time. This may be because your system is slow, or because the app is trying to connect to Microsoft’s servers, verifying your sign in information.

If Microsoft Teams is stuck on the loading screen for more than 2-3 minutes, you’ve likely run into an issue. The reason might be anything: the cache might be corrupt, your password might not be correct, there may be a problem with Microsoft’s servers, or there may be a problem with the installation.

Fix 1. Check your password

It is possible you’re typing the wrong password to your Microsoft Teams account. Basically, it should timeout and allow you to type the password again but if it doesn’t, check your password.

1. Open your browser, go to Microsoft Teams page.
2. Sign in with your account.
3. If the password is correct, exit the Microsoft Teams app.
4. Launch the app again and login.

Fix 2. Remove password and login again

Microsoft Teams stores the password to your account in the Windows Credentials Manager. It connects with it without problem but there are always exceptions.

1. Open Control Panel.
2. Select Accounts.
3. Click ManageWindows Credentials.
4. Find anything related to Microsoft Teams.
5. Expand it and then click on Remove.
6. Close Microsoft Teams and launch the app again.
7. Login Microsoft teams with your account.

  • Cache
  • databases
  • GPUCache

  • tmp

4. Launch Microsoft Teams and wait for it to download required files.

Fix 4. Reinstall Microsoft Teams

1. Open Control Panel.
2. Navigate to Program > Uninstall a program.
3. Find Microsoft Teams and uninstall it.
4. Delete the Microsoft Teams’ cache (see Method 3).
5. Go to this source to download Microsoft Teams. And then install it again.
