Problems installing skype



I have just bought a new Laptop preloaded with Windows 8 and am trying to install Skype with no luck.  After installation I get the blue skype login screen but nowhere to enter my log in details?!


I have tried the desktop version, I have tried installing with Opera (browser of choice) and with IE10 but always the same result.  I have checked Java and installed the latest version but still nothing?


Can anyone help me please!
