Slack, the “collaboration hub for work” has been updated for Windows 10 devices.  The communications and collaboration tool that supports text messaging, voice calls, file sharing and integration with Outlook and Onedrive.

The update included many bug fixes:

  • Interactions with network drives are now handled with grace and panache. Or, at the very least, “better”.
  • If you want to launch slack minimized, you now can. We will no longer stand in your way.
  • We’ve changed the look, feel and texture of our new HTML notifications. Give them a try! They’re delicious.
  • Sometimes on Windows 10, moving the window, say, up would cause a white bar to appear. We raised the bar.
  • Also, moving the window would sometimes change the size of the window. Your aim was true; we no longer move the goalposts on you.
  • In the Apps and Features and Uninstall a Program window, the icon showing up was not the right one. It now is.
  • The notification and unread indicators on the taskbar are now more readable.
  • Blurry icons were an issue for some users with multiple displays. Now all is clear.
  • The Slack icon, previously appearing with an opaque background color on Windows 10 is now all the clearer for being less clear.
  • Some people were seeing sidebar icons for teams other than the one they were in. This was confusing, and has now stopped.
  • And finally, if you have been having issues with keyboard or cursor issues, you should no longer be having them.
