Re: skype menu


thanks jean for all this.

At least ms have got it right with skype 8.4, however its going to be something I will have to get used to.

Compaired to skype 7 though, I do think once I get used to it that skype7 will be that old thing I had to doodle with menus all over the place.

If you are using the desk top version of skype 8 you can use the alt key + letter F key to bring up a menu arrow down to either sign out or quit.

When i last checked a few weeks back nvda could not read the skype menu down in the notification area. I am not sure if some one has made a ticket for this yet?

Well I have just got into some studdy online and I need skype.

I have got into skype 8, and well, after a little bit of doodling about I must say that ms have actually improved skypes web interface, everything is labeled, now the only issue is I can't access the context menu in skype right click, its about the only thing I can't do, so I can't quit skype without ending the task from task manager.

Its about the only thing I can't do.
