The Windows 10 Slack app updated to Version 3.3.4 earlier this week with a host of bug fixes for a variety of problems.

According to the patch notes, the bugs fixed include one that was showing users the same message twice when logging in (amusingly mentioned twice in the notes), another that made it hard to highlight text, and another that listed the incorrect keyboard shortcut for going full screen.

Here’s the full release notes:

  • Users signing in with Single Sign-On would see the same message twice when logging in.
  • Users signing in with Single Sign-On would see the same message twice when logging in. This will not happen any more.
  • When trying to select a portion of a code-formatted block of text (text formatted with ` or “` at either end), some characters were proving slippery and hard to select. You can now copy and paste to your heart’s content.
  • Several random, rare crashes — on launch and at other times — have been eliminated. More random and rare crashes inevitably exist, of course, and as soon as we know what they are, we’ll eliminate those too.
  • The full screen shortcut was mistakenly listed as ‘Ctrl+F’ instead of ‘Ctrl+Shift+F’ in the “View” menu. We both apologize for this and hope that, because of it, someone out there discovered ‘Ctrl+F’ as a useful shortcut for searching the channel that you’re in. Always look on the bright side of bugs.

Slack is a popular team messaging app that allows users to communicate with each other and send files to team members. It used to be king of this particular app niche, however, it’s recently encountered stiff competition from Microsoft Teams.
