How to pin a file in Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams helps you manage your documents by providing a Files tab in each channel. Keep your critical files visible to the team at all times by pinning them to the top of this Files tab.

The Files tab on a Teams channel gives you a safe place to store files that your team needs to access, all of which are automatically backed up to SharePoint. This makes the Files tab a popular place to store documents, but that convenience comes at a price: you can no longer easily find files when you have a large number of them in the list.
