unfortunately, your unwillingness to update Skype is going to
see you without that service when it is finally completely
phased out for the older versions.

your own personal attitude that determines as to how well you
adapt to and adopt new technologies.

Who cares. I am not willing to update Skype, and it makes

generations to where they have everything on their phone, even
though, I treid to use the new version of Skype..

re sending files a possible work around,

wish to send and right click on it,
one of the options that comes up is send to Skype.
hit enter on that and you go directly to Skype and into your
master contact list where you just find the person or
persons you wish to send the file to and click on their
I know this is probably not as sophisticated as some other
users skills might be but this has been working for me.
I hope this helps someone,

I can confirm that
since skype 8's initial release, the file send dialog is
at least in windows anyway. something I intend to lodge
feedback about. Furthermore, I am certain that MS will at
the very least take it under advisement and hopefully will
see that this is rectified in later versions of Skype.

the history of a sertin chat, its a pain, cause it
will loose focus of the last chat that was recieved,
and it will rap you clear to the beginning of theÂ

you have to hit your down arrow. over and over again,
to get to the end of the convorsation, you can not hit
control page up. or page down, nore home or end
eather, to take you to the beginning or end of teh
chat, i tryed that, so i found that skype for windows
10 fromÂ the microsoft store works a bit better for
me anyways, because at least with taht, when viewing
convorsations in sertin chats, it at least raps you to
the end, of the chat, it will focus you with what
wasÂ last said.
