This "link" is broken and non-functional like Skype in general. What are the software people there smoking? No contacts list, no way to make a new call !!?? Rediculous.
Try this link for the latest Skype 188.8.131.52 desktop version:
any solution? i have the same problem with a no-show of contacts list. I have a Mac. anything i need to download? I cannot open the download skypesetup.msi.
To start Skype, tap or click the Skype tile in the Start screen.
There are 3 tabs on the Skype Home screen
1. recent: Displays your recent calls and instant message conversations.
2. favorites: Displays your favorite contacts. You can add contacts to or remove them from the favorites section.
3. people: Displays all your contacts in alphabetical order. When you select people, all of your contacts are displayed.
To see your online contacts versus all contacts, click available. To search for or add a friend as a contact, click the add contact button.
I have been swearing for the last half hour as had no idea how to access contacts from my old version. Was signing in via desktop icon and would never have realised that I neede to use the start menu-you have saved me from a lot more bad language-I am very old so know rather too many swear words in English and other languages.....THANKS!
If you can't see contacts in your contact list, follow the instructions below:
I bought a new laptop but recognise nothing. Everything changes. I want to skype friends - if only I could find my list of contacts. What is wrong with you people? Surely you should be making it more user friendly ? Everything I do I need to fill in details, give a new password, download or scan ? Even my vodacom dongle for internet is not compatible on this machine. Sorry I spent the money on new technology, it sucks.
