Can't open links in my skype calls

[ Edited ]

I can't seem to open any links that are sent to me through skype this problem just started 2 days ago worked fine before that. When I click a link nothing happens it doesn't open any other programs. I tried upgrading and didn't fix it any clues what this may be?

a friend of mine helped me fix it. if you're having this problem still, or if someone new has this problem and it leads them here, try this:

 

Go to Control Panel, then open Default Programs.
Then click "Set your default programs"

Click your browser of choice, then click "Set this program as default."
Log out or restart, then try clicking a link sent to you over Skype.

If what, Jesus_McChrist has said above. Dosen't work for you. Look for Skype in the list and click the "Choose defaults for this program" Then tick the box "CALLTO URL:CallTo Protocol Skype" I did that and the links work now :bigsmile:
