How do you change the theme in skype? It is to bright, and i need it dark. Though i found some explanations on google (tolls>general> choose a wallpaper to change how skype looks), they were for older versions of skype and are useless on the latest 188.8.131.52 version.
any information would be greatly appreciated
Solved! Go to Solution.
The Skype theme selection you were referring to didn't change any coloring, but only the window title display.
Right now there's no way to change the colors in Skype, you can change the chat font though via the menu "Tools -> Options -> IM & SMS -> IM appearance"
I'd also like to know how to do this, the current version of skype looks awesome, really painfully white and with no contrast between messages,
I actually thought something had gone wrong at first.
anyway, every guide out there just says tools>options>general>change skype appearance...
only there is not change theme button, it's not there...
is it somewhere else? is there another way to do this?
Yes.It is big problem to unable change a theme in skype.This is very big problem for me becouse I am handycapt by eyes,I do not see very good. Vill it possible in the future?
i have also eye problems, and everething on my PC incl. when browsing IS DARK.
JUUUUST "THE GREAT SKYPE" IS NOT, BECAUASE IS NOT POSIBLE. MAYBE SOME MARKETING REASONS ARE MORE IMPORTANT OF PEOPLE SATISFY. HOWEVER I THINK IST TIME TO BE NOT SO "COMUNISTIC LOOKS POLITICS"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hi, if you're using everything as dark theme then I can only suggest to you to use Razer comms which works exactly like skype except video calls which it doesn't have, but it's really good for calls. Also I don't know how you can get your friend there, but so far I'm using it and it's pretty good.
Hope that helped ya for a bit, but sad that Skype doesn't have skin/theme abilities.
I have the same issue and cronic migraines they need to fix it before someone like me starts to throw a fit and make it happen by force. 5k in doctors bills for a free service, word to the wise "IF IT IS NOT BROKE DO NOT FIX IT"
I think that there is a progress. After I update skype its become with color sheme like my windows - high contrast, black background and white letters. Before Skype doesnt sync with win theme, so I can say that this is biiig step. Hope it's not just for few time.
I really do not understand, why is it so big problem for SKYPE IT guys to make different theme than white. Could you think for handicaped people too, please? We would appreciate it a lot. Whatever tiny software allows us to change the theme!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Simply skype sux! I miss MSN. it was way futuristic than skype... I can't think about a program doesn t allow you to change colors?! skype is a limited compare to MSN. I wish that they would use MSN's interface and abilities instead of that primitive skype...
