Re: Skype Problems On Windows 8

Whoever designed Skype for IE8 created an unmitigated disaster. Hence the long list of people with problems. It is obsure, illogical, and generally comes nowhere close to the earlier version of Skype which was clear and easy to navigate.

If there existed an alternative service with the same capabilities - or if I can have back the old version of Skype (please!) - I would switch immediately.

Now this "service" is a useless, time-wasting failure.

Re: Skype Problems On Windows 8

When I got my new laptop I had to update skype for it to work. But the video is green and fuzzy.  I dont know how to solve this problem.  Everything is up to date and the camera works fine in other applications.

Re: Skype Problems On Windows 8

I'm a Windows 8 Pro operating system. I downloaded skype for Windows 8. I can not receive files, I can't share my screen and whatever else i can't do that I could on my vista laptop. So like a dummy I paid for a year of premium service & have the same problems. Now to get customer service, they want me to pay more money in credits. Thats bull___t. Correct the problems BEFORE you sell services. I am repoorting this to the Better Business Bureau if it is not fixed or tell me how to fix it Today!!!

You can install the desktop version. It has all the features you are looking for.

Re: Skype Problems On Windows 8

I paid for premium service for a year thinking that would fix my issues of not having all my old features since I heard skype is pushing to monetize skype. I think everyone report to better business bureau & review sites n put this scam out of business is a good answer. Have a product that WORKS BEFORE you sell it morons (skype).

Re: Skype Problems On Windows 8

Hello:

 

I upgraded to Windows 8 Pro ystrday and on installing Skype and logging in, was shocked to see that none of my previous skype conversations were there.  Previously, I could trace even conversations a year ago, but now there are totally gone and only ystrday's conversations remain!  How can I trace the old ones?
