Where's the dialpad at

[ Edited ]

It's nowhere to be found! when a particular friend calls me at least..

ok so how does that go, he calls me, I need to press answer and then I need to press another # before we can actually talk, but like I said, the dialpad has vanished for some reason? it's not at the bottom of the screen anymore, like next to the other icons (where it's supposed to be) so what do I need to press/click/open before we can actually talk again? and can you perhaps make a print screen and show it to me? (thanks in advance :happy:) because this is gonna cause casualties, the older version of Skype just had it out there for everyone to see, it was there on the screen

 

Or I'm just blind

Re: Where's the dialpad at

the dial pad was removed from the call control bar that appears during calls because the dial pad is almost never needed for Skype-to-Skype calls

if you want to use it during a Skype-to-Skype call, you can do so via the menus -- click Call > Show Dial Pad

Where has the dialpad gone.   I need to call a non-skype phone & can't see how to do it - help someone before I quit skype forever!

What is the version of Skype program installed on your computer? In Skype go to Help -> About Skype.

Are you signing in Skype program on your computer or to your Account page on Skype.com?

Whatever is not good. It must be Skype program installed on your computer. See this:
