There used to be the small box with either the video or audio showing the call you are in. i accidentally closed it, and now cannot bring it back up.
help pls! As this really help tidy up my desktop space.
Once you've closed that pop-up window during a call the only way to re-open it is to restart the call.
To make sure that function is enabled, click on Tools > Options > Calls and make sure "Show call controls when Skype is in the background" is checked.
I cant find that option
In Skype go to Tools -> Options -> Calls -> Show advanced options. Select the option: "Show call controls when Skype is in the background".
reinstall Skype client and try again
For me the problem was the opposite.
I had to uncheck the option that says "show call controls when skype is in the backgrounds".
as long as it was checked I did not have the option to re-open the mini video screen.
