Slack 2.02 Update for Windows PCs

Here is a look at the release notes from Slack for version 2.02:

What’s New

  • Signed into a smorgasbord of teams? We’ll pay attention to which ones you use the most, and load those first when the app is started. A minor courtesy.
  • If you find yourself wedged between a rock and a hard place (or, a bug and our app) we offer you an escape hatch: Help > Reset App Data wipes the slate clean.


  • Context menus were misplaced (and by that we mean, completely absent) for a few unlucky folks. They’re in the right place now.
  • Like a low-budget horror film, a monstrous variety of crashes creeped into the 2.0 update, most of which have been sent back to the swamp.
  • Downloaded files of the same name will no longer overwrite each other.
  • If snapped to the left or right of your screen, Slack would develop a case of acute amnesia and reset position when restarted. Our recollection has improved this time around.
  • The crude white border that would appear around the app the next time it was launched (if you had been zoomed) has been zapped.
  • We’ve made further improvements to prevent false detection by antivirus vendors. Those meddling kids.
  • We offer up a better explanation of why the app stays in your taskbar, if you’ve set the window to Always flash.
