This is a "Video on Mac" forum. You might try the Windows forum for PC questions...

Hi franrosenthal:

 

The Skype application that you downloaded should be in your applications folder, but wherever you downloaded it, go find it and drag it on to your desktop/dock

You use Skype via the downloaded application (.dmg file), not through your account on the website. You did download the app., didn't you?

I have to re-install Skype every time I want to use it. Where is the Skype support? Obviously this is a known issue. A clear answer would be appreciated. I'm on an iMac btw.
