You try to share a link to a SharePoint item from a Teams chat, and there's this button. Take a guess what it does. Remember, this is a Microsoft product.

Answer: It discreetly opens a "create share link" dialog in another part of the program (where I can't see it), and DOES NOT COPY ANYTHING TO THE CLIPBOARD.

To a casual user, it appears successful though.

And that's how I pasted a malicous spam link I was reporting earlier into a Teams chat when I was trying to share a SharePoint file from another chat...


I really hate Microsoft products. Thankfully I only have to deal with them at work, and not all the time.

@Alex that’s exactly how I feel. Using Windows 11 is like going back in time several years, if you ignore the fancy theme.
