P$$_{2}$$O$$_{5}$$ compound is an archetypical glass-forming oxide with a high hygroscopicity. We found that the quenching from the P$$_{2}$$O$$_{5}$$melt under ultrahigh pressures enables obtaining densified P$$_{2}$$O$$_{5}$$ glasses with a residual densification up to 12% at normal conditions. These glasses have a low hygroscopicity and can exist under air conditions for several weeks. An examination of the structure of the new form of P$$_{2}$$O$$_{5}$$ glass reveals a cardinal decrease of the volume of nanovoids in the glassy matrix.
