Chrome Legacy

Hi all.


Does anyone know why "Chrome Legacy" pops up on Skype 8.6?

The only solution seems to be signing out and back in.

Thanks


Jerry.

No, but I'm getting it too. I've found that randomly using Jaws to simulate a mouse click in the Skype UI sometimes clears it though, in case that's helpful.

Thanks, Leonie.

I also discovered that downloading the new version from the website, instead of installing the new update via notification seems to have helped.

The simulated right click works for a while, then, it pops up again.

The fresh download may have worked.

I'm still getting it after a fresh download.
So, any ideas would be welcome.

It's definitely a persistent bug in the programme, rather than a glitch I think, though reinstallation often helps. I've also discovered that hitting alt f to open the File menu, then closing it again, does the trick too. It's very irritating though. I've mentioned it to the MS team.
