I'm having trouble getting started using Skype using windows 8. How do I do video to video and how do I add contacts. It seems I can't get past the profile...looking at various offers etc. I'm not interested in buying anything...just want to be able to use the video chat.
Download and install modern Skype.
Use Windows Store.
Press WinKey + R to open the Run window
WinKey (the button is located between the left Ctrl and Alt with the Windows logo)
Type: ms-windows-store: and press Enter
Then press WinKey + Q
Search Skype and install the app and join it.
Run Skype and right click on Home screen then click add contact.
Alternatively, Run Skype >> WinKey + C >> Search
Type your contacts name in the search bar.
Select the contact then Click add to contacts.
Select / Highlight the contact you want to call then click the green video call to start the video call.
