I have a brand new laptop, which of course is running Windows 8. Skype is running well on this laptop, but I have one small problem. I have had a contact request, and am unable to follow the instructions provided by Skype to accept this request, because I can't access the profile of the person in order to do so. I have right clicked the screen when in the request window, and no "go to profile" icon or text is visible. When I click on "add contact" I get a screen which is a request from me to the other person. We could be sending each other requests for ever, and not get connected! Please can someone advise me on this? Thanks in advance.
I am having a similar problem in Windows 8: I know that Contact Requests have been sent to me, but I am unable to find them. They never appear in "Recent" even after a couple of days - and I am thus unable to Accept these Requests. How do I Accept a Contact Request in Windows 8?
You can install the "good-old" desktop version using this msi-installer for the currently latest 188.8.131.52 version:
I still think skype has got a very bad direction after microsoft put his dirty hands on it.
I want to decide when to turn it on I want decide when I want to turn it off.
Why now to close it I have to run the task manager to kill it?
Please fix this mess with microsoft once forever.
