Re: I do not want full screen

Attention crazy people:


The app you really want is called "Skype for Windows Desktop" and you can get it just like normal from -- It works just like you were always used to.


The app you are using is called "Skype for Modern Windows" - it is made for tablets and is built-in to Windows 8. Just uninstall it... but you can imagine that it works well for touchscreens, so of course it's going to be full-screen... how can you blame the devs for this? 


If anything, I would blame the staff who replied to your answer and didn't explain why this app is fullscreen and that there is a normal desktop version like everyone wants. It's just a separate download :happy:

Re: I do not want full screen

This full-screen thing is so annoying - the Surface 3 is supposed to be a laptop, and does anyone want to have their whole screen [or half of it] taken over by Skype or anything else? ... luckily there's an easy solution - go install Skype for Desktop.
