  Linux (all) Tip -  Skype application for Linux   

Microsoft has just released the beta version of its new Skype application for Linux. This new version, despite being in stable, has replaced the existing Skype 4.3 on its website as the default download.

If you are not already aware, until now, Microsoft used a Qt based Skype client for Linux. This application lacked a number of features and was not updated for several years. The user interface looked like it was made before 2010.

But Microsoft woke up from the sleep and announced that it was working on a new Skype application for Linux. The new version uses modern cloud architecture, unlike the older version that used peer to peer architecture.

The new Skype version is basically the web version of Skype wrapped using Electron and Node.js. But it does bring the regular Skype features that Windows users are enjoying.

  Win 10 Tip -  How To Repair Windows 10   

The fastest, easiest, most reliable method when fixing an error in Windows 10 is to complete what is called an "in-place" reinstall. Note: The computer must be able to boot into Windows 10 since the user will be starting the install from a running instance of Windows 10. How well Windows 10 doesn't matter; what matters is that the user can boot Windows 10, log in, and get to the desktop. If you don't have a copy of Windows 10, one can be downloaded using the following site/tools.

It's best to read through the article in order to determine if an "in-place" reinstall is practical for you.

As the article mentions, an "in-place" reinstall won't affect any data or programs already installed as long as one follows the directions and makes sure a check is next to Keep Files and Apps.

Example: The Store Apps and Menu have become corrupted for some reason, but you can still boot into Windows 10. Or, programs are running slowly, error messages continue to pop-up, etc.

The in-place reinstall process has existed since Windows 7.

An article from Microsoft:

Remember: This won't work if you can't run Windows 10; you DO NOT want to use this method to boot from a DVD or USB to "fix" an installation.
