I have an account on Skype and my girlfriend has access to it. I have a question. How to recognize if we are both logged? And if I start a voice conversation with someone - sounds will be sent from two microphones? Or only from this computer which started the conversation? And the same question about video camera. If i start video conversation with my friends and she will logs in to my account in that moment - this talk will be heard and seen in her computer?
Skype version: 188.8.131.52
Thank You all for help & sorry for my bad english.

If you're signed on to the same account on two devices then yes, an incoming call will ring on both of them. However, whichever one answers first will take the call and the other device will not be able to participate. No audio. No video.
The only exception is if two devices are signed on to the same account, Instant Messages received and sent from either device will be seen on both of them.
Unless you have some special reason for both using the same Skype name, I would suggest it makes more sense for your girl friend to have her own Skype name/account. Among other things, that would let you do Skype calls between each other.
And let me add...your English was fine. Reading your post I couldn't tell it's not your native language.
I have set up some groups in my skype account from my laptop, but if I log in from another machine the groups are not there. Any ideas how I can get them to be available wherever I log in?
My crazy ex has been logged into my account even though we are no longer together. He has sent messages on my behalf, etc. He deleted account and then re-activated it and I was able to figure out the password and have sinced changed it. However---- I would like to know if he still is logged on. I know that Facebook will allow you to stay logged into someones' account even if they log out on their computer as long as you never log out or turn off your pc. Is there any way to tell if he still has access to my account? I do not want to change my username.
If you've successfully changed your password it will sign you out on all other devices where you may have been signed in.

why would you use the same account? are you crazy??
I am using my skype for business and leisure both. and I would never let anyone use it at the same time.
it is bad for the other part as well.
Simple solution: sign out every time you finish using Skype - don't leave your account signed on, and don't set it up with automatic sign-on when the computer starts.
