I do not get a Skype Icon. this is a new computer that had previous computer files copied over, do I need to download skype to it--one thing, when I did type Skype in a bunch of folders were listed, no Icon
When I search in my toolbar for programs, it does not find skype, although I obviously have an account (or would not be seeing my contacts. I really need an icon.
