Re: Problem with Skype


To be honest, skype classic works, on win10 you can run what skype you want.

Saying this, after leaving nvda skype group and all my other skype groups I have simply decided to not use skype, even for work, I don't need it but I can't have microsoft monkeying round either.

I will pay for calls or use email from now on.

I just did a search on google for hot keys for skype 8 and I found the
list on the skype support page. I think skype 7 was easier to use,
but skype 8 is not as hard to use as I first thought. One thing I do
do with skype 8 is when I hit the button of someone I want to call, is
shift tab back to audio call button. These hotkeys will make things
even easier.

The Skype app has become much more accessible!
Here is a table of key commands for the skype app.
The table gives the Windows and the Mac command for each action.
Here it is:
What are hotkeys and how do I use them in Skype?
Keyboard shortcuts are specific combinations of two or more keys on your
keyboard. They make it easier and faster for you to use commands that you
would otherwise have to access via the menus. You can use keyboard
shortcuts to easily quit Skype, send a file, copy text and a lot more.

OK, maybe You didn't understand My pleasure. I would like to use
accessible version of Skype, but I can't log in to previous version,
which seens to be accessible.
Note: Skype 8 isn't very well accessible.
