Skype for Windows

Has been released another minor version of Skype for Windows, which fixes some bugs which crashes Skype during calls. From now, the Skype for Windows is the recommended build for download and install.

However, there is another problem — at least for me, Skype crashes when I try to copy text to the clipboard (using Ctrl+C or Right-click → Copy) and cutting text from input field (using Ctrl+X or Right-click → Cut). I noticed the “Ctrl+X bug” in, and now, in appeared and the “Ctrl+C bug”. If you also have this problem, please let me know in the comments, pointing the full version of Windows (including the build number).

          Ask the sender which version of Skype, operating system and Internet Explorer does he use. Also give to him this link where he should check access to Skype servers. Post here information about versions and the URL of the report.

              Sorry, but for now I have no idea what may cause the problem. Try to ask on official Skype Community or contact Skype Customer Service — they for surely can help you.

              ps. Please let me know, if your bug will be fixed. I too want to know what the problem was.

      Administrator (karma: +1187),
      According to Skype Features, you can add up to 10 people to a video call and up to 25 people to an audio call. For larger groups with up to 250 members you should try Skype for Business.
