The official Slack app has updated for Windows 10 devices with a massive load of bug fixes both large and small.

A lot of visual glitches have been fixes in this update as have some more technical problems such as buggy cursor issue.

Here’s the full release notes:

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.
