Same recurring problem: despite trying all available solutions posted here I still have no menu or toolbars.Any experts have a definitive fix? The usefullnes of Skype is greatly diminished as I cannot send or receive pics and files or use any of the other options available from toolbar menu.I am using Windows XP and all suggestions gratefully received.
Solved! Go to Solution.
First make sure that you have the latest Skype version (184.108.40.206) installed.
If this is still not resolving your problem, then try the solution provided here.
Thanks ruwim,did as you suggested but when I got to <ui>I clicked on and it changed value from - to + but did not see chrome enabled and no instructions as to where to add the line you suggested.
You should open the config.xml file in a text editor, e.g. Notepad or similar. Do not double click this file, because then it will open in Internet Explorer and you will not be able to change anything.
Do as stated here:
If you see there a line reading <ChromeEnabled>1</ChromeEnabled> then change the value 1 to 0. If this line doesn’t exist, then just add this line <ChromeEnabled>0</ChromeEnabled>.
ruwim,thanks again for your input but sadly on clicking config xmlwith only one click,either left or right ,takes me straight to the big list where I cannot change anything.How would I open the file in a text editor eg notepad so that I might try to change settings?
sounds easy....Start my Notepad....but how?....ruwin you are being very patient but you are dealing with a 70 year old thicky here!
I can follow a sequence but I need it clearly step by step....insruction for dummies!
thanks again Tony.
1. Use the start-"run" and type in %appdata%
A directory list appears. Go to your sesr name folder and find "CONFIG.XML"
Open it with Notepad.
Find <UI> element (about 3/4 of the way down page)
press enter to add line under <UI> and paste this:
<ChromeEnabled>-1</ChromeEnabled> right after <UI>.
Save the file and restart Skype. FIXED
