So, you are a happy Skype user. No matter how frequently you use the application or how proficient you are in using it, you surely can’t do without learning these quick tips and tricks that we’re about to share with you. By applying these tricks you sure can get the best out of Skype and impress your friends, family, and co-workers as well.
Here you go…
Free screen sharing
Using this feature can be especially handy when you are conducting a meeting. Without installing any other software or using different tools to do it, you can use your very own Skype to share your screen space with other members in the meeting. To do it, simply ensure that all members have the latest Skype version installed on their computers and the member who wants to share his/her screen clicks on the 'Share' icon while the video chat is on.
Create ‘Favorite’ contacts
If your Skype list is swelling with names, here’s how you can highlight the ones you communicate with frequently. Add the particular name to ‘Favorites’ and identify them by the Star. To add to Favorites, drag the contact from the ‘All’ list to the ‘Favorites’ list.
Create and use multiple Skype accounts
Definitely, you may want to run two instances simultaneously. If you are a Windows user, Skype makes this possible for you. To enable it, follow the simple tweak: login to one account, press the Windows + R keys, type the command
C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe /secondary
And press the Enter key. That’s it!
Contact List Ads
Are you annoyed with the rotational movement of the Contact List ad displaying at the bottom? Here’s the simplest way to turn it off – access ‘Options’ in ‘Tools’ and click on ‘Notifications’; click on ‘Alerts & Messages’ and de-select the ‘Promotions’ option. Simple!
If you are up for some mischief, Skype can aid you there too! You can easily change the history of a particular chat session by ‘Editing’ the message, even after it has been seen and read by the recipient.
Cool, isn’t it? Try out these simple tech tips today and make your favorite video chatting app even more handy and useful for you…
