Voici ma question en français, je désire changer mon avatar, mais depuis que je suis sur Windows 8, je n'ai plus cette option. Je ne peux aller dans outil et lorsque je clique sur mon profil je vois la photo mais je ne peux y accéder.

Run Skype. Highlight your Profile picture.




Click again on your picture.



Now Browse and Select the new picture, then Click Open.

Where can I see the avatars I have used in the past? I would like to put my previous one back again but I cannot find the list of pictures used.


the avatars I refer to are not stored in any drive or email, but I used to upload them within skype in the previous versions of the program.

Thank you!


It worked for me on my Toshiba Satellite notebook computer with Windows 8.1 O/S.
