Issue#1822: Skype - Skype keeps crashing when shutting down Windows 10

  • Every time I try to shut down windows 10 an error message appears telling something about wrong memory addresses etc. The forum is full of such complains, so it must be a relatively common issue, however I don't have an asus sound card, but a creative sound blaster z. Skype also works fine in the older version (6.21, which is driving me mad trying to update). DirectX diag didn't uncover any problems as well. Also tried to uncheck I sign out sound - no difference.


    Please help!

  • Issue#630039: Skype - Windows 10 client window too large v.

    The last two updates (to and now to on my Win10 desktop have left me with a client that is sucking up 2/3 of the screen width on my vertically-oriented monitor; I'm unable to make the single-window view any narrower than the absurdly-wide default, which now overlaps the other item I had exposed on half the screen.  I've seen post about switching to split-window view which is *okay* as a work-around but now leaves me with two separate windows to manage and is frankly annoying.  There must be other people who don't want Skype chewing up most of the screen - isn't there any other way to go back to the client window width from prior to 7.22?
