Hello..
Well I am facing a very strange problem. I am using Skype (desktop) in windows 8.

The problem is that there is no space or textbox so I have not been able to sign in obviously.

 

So Itried to reinstall skype a couple of times but the result is the same

Already the windows 8 app for skype is buggy. I 've not been able to use it even once.

 

The screenshot is attached, it would better describe my problem.

So what am I supposed to do ?

Is your Windows 32-bit or 64-bit?

Try to re-register library files.

You can try this “legacylogin” workaround, which will enable login using the old legacy login window, but some other Skype functions, as e.g. “Add a contact”, may still not work.

 

Quit Skype. Make sure that you don’t see any Skype.exe processes in Windows Task Manager. If necessary, then stop these processes.

 

Open this folder on your computer:

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\ 

 

You should see there the Skype application file (Skype.exe).  Right click on the Skype.exe file and select: Send to – Desktop (create shortcut). Right click on the newly created shortcut and select Properties and then the Shortcut tab. In the Target field you will see now:

 

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe"

 

Click with your mouse on the text in the Target field and move your curser one space after the last quotation sign and add the text /legacylogin. The text in the Target field should now read:

 

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe"  /legacylogin

 

Click OK to save the changes. Start Skype using this new shortcut. Can you now login to Skype?
