Miniature video window always on top - how to turn it on?

Hey, Default in Skype, during the conversation, in the upper right corner we can see miniature video window which is always on top - it's really helpful for me when talking and surfing the web in the same time.

Last day, someone turned it off, and now i don't know how to switch it back on.

Can someone help me, please?

If you close the small pop-out window (now it is called “call control window”), the only way to re-establish this window is by re-starting the call. However, you can revert to the “old” pop-out window by doing this:

 

Go to Tools -> Options -> Call settings -> Show advanced options. Uncheck the option: “Show call controls when Skype is in the background”. However, you will now have to manually activate the pop-out window using the monitor icon on the call toolbar.

Woops...there was another thread on here asking a similar question though nobody had resolved it, creating a false lead. Was going to fix it, but accidentally posted to this source. Disregard please.

No. This option is only available on the desktop version,

 

The currently latest Skype 6.7.0.102 desktop version can be installed using this msi-installer:
