Just got a quick question, I recently got a new laptop with Windows 8 and Skype came pre loaded in my start menu. I'm not a huge computer guy, but I have used Skype numerous times on older laptops with no problems. On my older laptops I could be having a call and when I minimize the Icon a smaller screen of the person I was talking to would show up in the corner of the screen, so I could search the web or type an essay but still see the person I was talking too in one of the corners of the screen. I havent been able to figure out how to do this with the Windows 8 version because in order to get to the internet i have to go back through the start bar and click on the google chrome app. I was wondering if there was a way where I could just minimize the skype conversation so the Skype home screen wouldnt be there, but I could still see the person I was talking too in one of the corners of the screen. Sorry if this is a stupid question, but thanks in advance!
Press WinKey + M to minimize the Skype app window

Same issue here. All my buddies use skype but are not running windows 8 and they can minimize and talk while playing games. Windows 8 apparently is not allowing this?> any fixes yet
