Hi. Skype looks great on Win 8 but I am not getting any notifications of new chats. Notifications settings are all turned on and Skype application is turned on in notifications. How can I resolve this?
What anti-virus application or security suite is installed?
Re-Check this settings.
Win + C >> Settings >> Change PC Settings >> Notifications >> drag the slider to On.
Open Skype, Win + C >> Settings >> Permissions >> Lock screen >> drag the slider to On.
Add / Allow C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.SkypeApp_22.214.171.124_x86_
Gained access. When you say exclusion lists, am i trying to select the exe file for skype within the folder you suggested and giving it full access?
Go to your C:\ drive Properties and Give full permissions to "ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES".
go to C:\Program Files\WindowsApps Properties and Give full permissions to your Microsoft Account User ID
You need to add / allow the C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.SkypeApp_126.96.36.199_x86_
Thankyou for your help Tamin. I have followed your instructions but get errors applying the security changes to all application packages and the changes are not held. "Failed to enumrate objects in the container. Access is denied"
Restart your computer to safe mode and try again.
Ignore any warning message and continue.
