I have tried to open an acct. I can put in my name and password it is accepted on the web, few moments later I am logged out and when I try to reenter my password it will say not valid, I have to reset it to get on for a couple of minutes and the cycle starts over please help. I am running windows 8.1
I have reverted back to Skype for Windows Desktop, do not like Skype for Win8, do not like having no say in my account being linked to the Microsoft account, and there seems to be a limit with how many times can unlink,,,and you can use it unless you use the microsoft account, honeslty that sucks. So Sorry, not going to use Skype for Win 8.
i have come to the conclusion the swype sucks.. you can never get help, they always send u to message board.. if anyone can answer a simple question, here it is.. when i try to connect to facebook, Help tells me to go to contacts, click ALL, then click on facebook, only facebook is not there. AND is ther a place to get swype for win 8.1.
I am using a Acer Aspire V5 laptop and i can use the skype from the start page but i cant switch on the camera.
They can not see me when im doing a video call. I have no ideia what to do.
Can you help me pls?
I uptaded the windows 8.1 few days ago but i tryed to use skype with windows 8 and it was the same problem.
Hope to hear from you.
Really skype please fix this cause i am in a call for 20 minutes before it crashes kicks me out and disconnects and i know it's not only me cause my friend who just got windows 8.1 say that same thing happens so update it cause not being able to talk to my friends because of this is bs
I just wanted to add a comment here that Skype for Windows 8 / 8.1 is the most poorly designed software I have ever used, and I honestly hope that the people that colluded on the shoddy single sign on functionality with Windows LIVE ID, can rest happy knowing they have probably screwed more peoples personal accounts than anything Microsoft has been able to do on their own.
I have used computers for 26 years, and not once have I ever screwed myself as quickly and as easily just by being in a hurry and accepting whatever **bleep** Skype made me jump through to get on a call with my family.
Anyone who helped with this product should honestly be ashamed they work in computer software.
