Re: Message Notification

My version 5.5.0.112

OS: Win 7

Wiew: Compact

Although my "message notification settings" like that

 

What a **bleep**ing message is this

 

The message body contains .....skype..........which is not permitted in this community. Please remove this content before sending your post.

Please do what my prior posts suggests from the Skype program window menu.

 

A new version has just been released August 23, 2011:


Please download/install this version from here, when prompted click the open or run button: http://www.skype.com/go/getskype

 

This new version is 5.5.0.114 to check what version you have, using the main Skype client window please do:

 

Help -> About Skype

Re: Message Notification

If you activate the Compact View, the option to open a New Window When I Receive a Message in Compact View is activated by defaut.  You can go to Tools >> Options >> IMs and SMS >> IM Settings, then click Show Advanced Options to double-check.

 

A new and separate window will open everytime you receive a new message (and you can notice that it will also be flashing in your taskbar).
