Re: Skype 8 for desktop answering incoming call?

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>

Hi Brian

The skype 8 program was downloaded from and i grabbed the
skype 8 desk top version to see what it was like.

So it replaced my version 7.4 of skype.

The new version is more web based it lookes like and is quite easy to
navigate etc. you just need to work out where stuff appears when you
open stuff.

The tutorial for the basics is almost finished. There might be some
other stuff i might add to it?

I still have the skype app on my windows 10 machine that is the one
where you do more tabbing etc.

It is more like the other apps on Windows 8 and 10.

The web version of skype is done through your browser and is web based
so it is pretty much like the skype 8 desk top program.

It is meant to work with a few different browsers it is like in a web
page only it is a program like the skype 8 desk top program.

The skype 8 desk top program i might even just do a audio over view of
what it is like where to go in the program to find different sections
like accepting calls automatically etc along the lines of the tutorial i
am writing up.

So have i confused a few people now?

Which version are you using?

My computer which is running windows 10 has the windows 10 app on it
also the latest skype 8 desk top app which i am writing a tutorial
for. In the desk top version skype 8 it has the options there to
accept them automatically under calling they just have to be checked.

Just to confuse you as well there is a web version which is very much
like skype 8

I guess that’s a solution, but that’s not exactly encouraging. You
figure for such an essential command, there would be a hotkey for it
that would work outside of the program itself. I mean it already
existed in older versions (alt plus pg-up).
I’m going to have to try tomorrow with it on my laptop. I haven’t
updated my main desktop where I do nearly all of my calls so we’ll see.

Hi If i remember right when the call comes in it lands on i think it
is the accept button then press the enter key and start talking.

I am not sure if it was read out by nvda though.

I would have to get some one to give me a call to confirm again as i
use voip alot now.

Hello list,
So, I upgraded Skype for desktop on a laptop to try to get used to it
before MS kills Skype classic in September. I came across some short
cut keys from:
What I’m not finding is the hotkey to answer an incoming call. I can’t
believe that there isn’t one for such a  basic function, but it’s not
listed in the table. Start a call, hang up, mute, that’s all fine, but
nothing for answering a call. Am I missing something or is this really
not included as a shortcut key?
