Skype for Desktop vs Skype Modern App

Q: Skype for Desktop vs Skype Modern App

I have always used Skype for Desktop and only recently found that there is a Skype Modern App on my system.
From what I have read it would seem the best plan would be to ditch the App and just continue with the desktop version.
Have there been any recent changes that would make the the Modern App a better solution than the Desktop version?

Preferred Solution: Skype for Desktop vs Skype Modern App

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Skype for Desktop vs Skype Modern App

They have updated it recently so it doesn't continue to ring even when you have answered the desktop version which is why I uninstalled it in the first place. This means in theory you could install both and answer whichever you felt like at the time.

I prefer the look of the desktop version personally so I never re-installed the Modern App version.

You might see if creating a new shortcut for it directly from the .exe file of Skype may work instead.

I've experienced some problems and discomfort with skype for win8:
- not able to show screen,
- terrible design,
- very slow response (i.e. when I click RMB, the menu shows up in several seconds, and I expect to see it immideately),
- doesn't understand links to skype chat like skype:?chat&blob=blahblahblah, when I click it nothing happens.

I've also tried skype for desktop, it was even worse:
- when I changed online status to invisible (i've also tried with N/A), skype stopped to receive and send messages,
- when this or another error occurs, I try to kill skype process via task manager, TM then firstly says that skype is not responding (so i am trying to kill process), after that TM stops responding as well.
So when i've tried skype for desktop i had to reboot my laptop about 5 times in a day.

Now I've installed skype from Store back, but I still need to go to skype chat.

Could anyone please help me either make skype 5.x/6.x work on win8, or enter the chat which i need?

Here's my system: http://i.imgur.com/Fu65f57.png

Skype-Modern App

Ok, I'm using the Modern Skype app and I want to change my picture.
So I click on my user pic and I am taken to My Pictures folder.
But I don't wanna be there, so I "Go Up" to the Users Folder and
click/open Play. But I do not see App Data listed.

What I would like to do is browse to this specific folder
without leaving the Modern Skype app.

c:\Users\Play\AppData\Roaming\Skype\Pictures\

Why?
Because that is where the picture I wish to use is located.

I am well aware that I could drop out of the Modern interface
and copy/move the file from there to the My Pictures folder.
But why is one 'forced?' to take that extra step?

So I guess the bottom line question is this....

How does one SHOW hidden files and folders and then
NAVIGATE to them within the Windows 8 Modern interface???

A:Skype-Modern App

Hello WinD....

First off, I'm not a Metro person so could you explain how you were able to get that view? I can't seem to duplicate it?

Next, have you tried enabling "show hidden files and folders" in the explorer view? Maybe those settings are global and will carry over to Metro? See screenshot:

Dear
 
I noticed that skype has send to all skype contacts a certain link, to one contact even multiply links.
 
this all happens on the same day: 17th december from 14:30 -14:39.
 
I haven't seen any spam send anymore after that.
 
Skype support told me to reset my password, I did, and to download safety scanner from microsoft. they proviced me with the link.
 
when I try to open the link, the browser cannot load the page, it is stuck in a loop:  sometimes I see a page, but just for a second or even less, then mostly white page, and browser keeps trying to load the page. and in chrome : a  little shield symbol on the right side of the address bar says that it's trying to load scripts from unauthenticated sources. this message dissappears very quickly.
 
 
I have skype installed on two laptops, and on my smartphone (iphone).
 
The problem I told about, is on one laptop that has no antivirus. I did not yet checked the other laptop, if the microsoft page opens or not. but I do have bitdefender internet security (paid) installed on the second laptop.
 
I want to be sure the laptop that has the problem, is virusfree.

A:spam send in skype account to all skype contacts - cannot load page safety scan

I downloaded the safety scanner from microsoft from my other laptop without any issue.
 
copied it to a usb, put it on the problem laptop, a full scan and nothing found.
 
I realize I did had a antivirus paid version (kaspersky internet securuity) on the laptop, as I first said that it had no antivirus.
 
I only disabled it because it had problems running.
 
Now I enabled it, updated it and run a full scan. nothing found.
 
I don't know if skype is the cause and not a virus?  the skype workers told me that the cause could be anything (email, virus on computer).
 
I mostly use skype on iphone, and here I'm confused with what the skype workers said: one said that iphone can not be infected, so no need to check the iphone.
an other said: you can download an app from app store to scan for viruses, because it is possible that the virus is on the iphone.
 
This is really not clear anymore.

Click to call will not go away.  When I try to use the control panel I get a message that

So simply put, I cannot use skype for desktop. The app version that is preinstalled, I can't use because it drives me insane so uninstalled it, however, it IS STILL blocking skype for desktop from working. I've attached a screeenshot to show you what I mean.

Is there a way to get rid of the app version of skype since clearly uninstalling it did nothing.

Just to provide a bit more info, no, I am NOT already signed in on my pc.

EDIT: More info, once it "breaks" it starts a skype process which I cannot kill until reboot.

Of course, I've uninstalled Skype, replaced the shell32.dll with the one from the Windows 7 CD, deleted the IconCache.db file after editing the registry to increase the max icon cache to 2048. I've run Norton AV and MalwareBytes scans with nothing found

So I have a problem with a fake update pop-up. It's the last thing that's left from something else, I do not recall exactly what it was, but Mobogenie does sound familiar. I wanted to download a program that allowed me to open a file (I thought it was some sort of text file I needed for a thesis in school, but it turned out to be a frikkin picture, so I got nothing for my troubles!), and apart for letting me open the file, it installed a bunch of other crap. It messed with my Chrome, and made their own search engine my primary. I removed all of it (using what little skill I have: basic search, CCcleaner and Norton Antivirus scan, and after that everything seemed fine.

I'm confused about Skype. Evidently, and yes, I did use this in the past. Now I want to use it again but am having trouble signing in. I'm confused about Microsoft acct sign in. I also have a @live.com acct. It says to sign in with Microsoft acct. I need clarity between the two. Also, I have Windows. Is there also a Windows password? I'm mixed up as you can read. Can someone help? Thanks.
 

A:Skype

You can use two different accounts to sign into Skype. You can use a "Skype Account that is for for Skype only, or you can use a Microsoft Account such as an Outlook.com, Live.com, Hotmail.com, etc account. You can use either account type based on what you have, the reason for the two accounts is because Microsoft bought Skype years ago and migrated their Messenger users over to it so they allow both account types.

If you have a Live.com account you should be able to use that with the Microsoft Account option, If you have a Skype account then you need to use the Skype account option.

You can also link your Skype account to a Microsoft account if you want: https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA12060/how-do-i-link-my-skype-and-microsoft-accounts

Hi,
What type of device are you using as a microphone? Headset? Softphone? etc. As I'm sure you know this plays a large role in how to configure your options. Also, have you updated your drivers? Are you using the Realtek 97? if so there is a package that you can install (I had to) in order for things to go on working properly.
6305_Vista_Win7_PG537 (you can google it) is an audio (et al) folder of updates I found to get my audio working again. Hope it helps. If you can add some more info (i.e. devices and settings) I might be able to assist you further. Oh yeah, Skype just released an update recently. Did you get it?

Okay so.Since I got my laptop in December, skype hasn't worked on it. When I say it doesn't work, I mean it loads up fine, responds quickly, I can send messages fine, but the moment I call somebody, the audio of not only the skype call but also every other program on my computer becomes slow, robotic and unintelligable. Along with this, my skype partner can't hear my voice unless they turn their audio to 100%. You'd think this is a skype problem as when I call on google hangouts or something similar, I don't have this issue. I contacted skype support but that was about as useful as talking to a brick wall with a representative badge. Someone even suggested it was my skype account that was causing this, but it works perfectly on my mobile, on other laptops and on my desktop. (I know you'll say just use skype on those! but I don't have the patience to sit beside a power outlet all day as skype drains mobile charge in 0.2 seconds, and my desktop headphone input is broken.)Pleeeeease somebody help as it's incredibly frustrating being unable to use skype on my laptop!
