No "Skype," folder in %appdata%

Hi,

I just installed Skype on Windows 8 and tried to log in, but I never go to that point. I have heard somone say to go to the Skype folder in Roaming, but it was not there. Should I create a Skype folder?

What happens when you are trying to SIGNIN to Skype?
Did you receive any error code / messages?
Which version of Skype do you use?

Regards,
Tamim

 I use Windows 8 Skype via Windows Store. Funny, when I got the Windows 8.1 Preview, it let me sign in. Though I still don't have a skype folder.

The location is different for modern version of Skype.

I found it, but does that mean I need to rename that folder?

 

Thanks,
