Re : safari ..can't open skype

Hi,

 

Skype is an application by itself.
So, simply by double-clicking it, it should work fine.

Re: safari ..can't open skype

I'm having the same problems with Safari.

 

The message is that Safari can't open the specified address.  Safari can't open "skype:?call" because Mac OS X doesn't recognize Internet address starting with "skype.".

Re: safari ..can't open skype

As Foyan says, Skype calling requires that the Skype application be installed on your computer.  You cannot make Skype calls from a browser.  You can manage your account, but not make calls.
