No notifications on Windows 8

Hi. Skype looks great on Win 8 but I am not getting any notifications of new chats. Notifications settings are all turned on and Skype application is turned on in notifications. How can I resolve this?

Re: No notifications on Windows 8

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed?

Re-Check this settings.

 

Win + C >> Settings >> Change PC Settings >> Notifications >>  drag the slider to On.

All those settings are set correctly. I am using McAfee Security Centre

Add / Allow C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.SkypeApp_1.1.0.25_x86__kzf8.... folder to McAfee's Exclusion Lists.

Re: No notifications on Windows 8

Gained access. When you say exclusion lists, am i trying to select the exe file for skype within the folder you suggested and giving it full access?

Re: No notifications on Windows 8

Go to your C:\ drive Properties and Give full permissions to "ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES".

Re: No notifications on Windows 8

Thankyou for your help Tamin. I have followed your instructions but get errors applying the security changes to all application packages and the changes are not held. "Failed to enumrate objects in the container. Access is denied"

Re: No notifications on Windows 8

Restart your computer to safe mode and try again.

 

Ignore any warning message and continue.
