Can't share screen

Ever since the update I cannot share my screen with the person I call, but they can share their's.  The option appears as unclickable.  What's going on with this?

Re: Can't share screen

If you have not yet updated your Skype to the latest version and your contact is in “Invisible” state, then this may be the reason. Due to a bug in the 5.8 version, screen sharing was disabled when a contact was in “Invisible” state.


In Skype go to Help -> About Skype. What version is reported?
