Sending file attachments

Unable to send file attachments.  Skype allows me to attach file easily, but file sits in "waiting" mode and never is delivered.  All other functionality is fine.  High speed access integrity is good.  Thanks.

Is the contact, to whom you are sending the file, Online on Skype? Also, your contact must accept file transfer. Until this is not done, file transfer will be in “waiting” state.

Re: Sending file attachments

tonyllanio,

 

File transfer feature is not available in modern Skype.

 

You can install Skype desktop client

 

How do I get the desktop version of Skype on Windows 8?

Regards,
Tamim

Re: Sending file attachments

How long will it remain "waiting" before Skype cancels if the contact is not on line?

Re: Sending file attachments

THe person receiving the file MUST be connected online, and accept the file request. If they are not online, it will sit in 'waiting'mode until they do get online with skype.
