Skype New Version Improves Screen Sharing

Skype released Skype 5.6 for Windows today. The new version have improved the way you start and control screen sharing during a call. When you start a ‘Share screens’ session there is now an introductory message where you can select to share in full screen mode or in a window. You can also select which window or monitor to share, in case you have more than one available.

A great New getting started experience

The new version also also improved the first time set-up experience for new Skype users. The new getting started process walks you through a number of easy steps to help set up Skype, so it’s working as it should – including setting up the webcam, checking the audio and adding a profile picture, so it’s easier for your friends to be able to find you on Skype.
