Skype 5.9 – Download

Skype logo

I haven’t uploaded a new version of Skype for some time now, but it is time to do that. The most recent version is 5.9 and you can download it from the blue button to the right where it says Download Skype 5.9.

At first glance we see that the installation window is kind of different, but the interface of the program is basically the same. Some errors are fixed, like: crashing on Esc key while editing your phone number, few problems with screen sharing, the video preview window not closing even after the video has stopped and many more.

Some new features are added as well. I think that the most important one is the ability to stop the automatic updates. This option was removed some time before and users were not happy. If we wanted to stop the updates we had to do some tricks. But now in Skype 5.9 this can be done directly from the menu Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Automatic updates.

What is new in Skype 5.9?

  • Confirmation message on sending a contact to a group chat
  • Hotkey to make a screenshot during a video call
  • Ability to stop the automatic updates

    Hi. Glad it helped you.

    Hi. Try uninstalling it and then installing. Or maybe even get one of those programs that do complete uninstall, also you may clean the registry with a program like CCleaner. Another idea is to try another version, like the most recent one.
