Okay, so I updated to the latest Skype because I didn't want to lose
settings and whatnot.

It's ... not as bad as I feared. The latest version is 8.25 and the
interface is more understandable than I thought it was last year. Alt
doesn't do anything, which sucks, but the buttons and the dialogues that
open when you press them make more sense the more I delve into it. The
one issue I thought I'd have is being able to read my chat history, but
there's an option to export that as an HTML file and Google Chrome
doesn't flip a lid if the document is too big like Firefox sometimes
can. And my entire chat history for the last year and a half (since I

Pretty sure Skype for Win. 10 doesn't have menus. I'm not talking about
Skype 8, but Skype for Win. 10. It mostly works, though it's kind of slow,

receive one the other day. If classic's going away, that's what I'll be
using and I think that's the one feature I haven't gotten working yet.

Have you gotten sending files to work in Skype on Windows 10? If so, how?
I'm fairly sure the keystroke is supposed to be shift-ctrl-f to send a
file but I've never gotten it to work, it does something else instead,
can't recall what at the moment and I'm not on the machine running it to
