Re: Getting to chat messages during a call in Skype forWindows 10.

I really like Skype 8 for the same reason, because you can use all of the web navigation commands just like you are on a web site.

With Skype 8, you press E for edit, and you can type a message.

Press many other letters, and you can navigate around.

Do not turn off the virtual PC cursor. That is why you have to tab around.

If you leave the virtual PC cursor on, you can navigate just like on a web site.

It's not as bad as it seems. I use it pretty well hear the only thing

I am not a fan of is having to pull up the chat when in a call but it

can be done.
