I am on a MacBook Pro. I just downloaded the latest Skype version. Now I see pop-ups of my contacts when they sign-in and sign-out. How do I disable that function? Thanks.
Two places to look: Skype's Notifications preferences, where you can configure what happens. And, if you have Growl installed, do likewise there. You'll Find Growl (a third-party application not affiliated with Skype) in the bottom row of System Preferences. Take a look there, even if you don't think you have Growl. It may have sneaked in when you weren't looking...
