Re: just installed 8.5

Michele Barbi
 

Hi Sugar, I think latest version of Skype is 8.64...

Anyway, in order to see all your contacts, you should press shift+tab from the contact list, when you hear "filter menu" press space on it, and in the context menu choose "Show all my contacts". It tells you inactive, you press enter to check it. I sincerely don't like this approach though, because with Skype 8.x if all your contacts are active the contacts are sorted in alphabetical order, so I decided to see only visible contacts and I prefer it that way. I can't see away and dnd ones though, but well I'm getting used to it.

Bye!

just installed 8.5

Hi all

Just installed 8.5 and I need to know if anyone would be kind enough to tell me how to find my contacts?

I went to alt 2 but I can’t seem to find my entire contact list. Just the one’s who are currenly active

 

Any other tips to get around, would be helpful

Thanks

Yeah it’s got to be settings somewhere.  The only issue I have like that is when I’m signed into the out of sight radio skype and that’s because we have a phone number connected to it for listener requests.  Sometimes telemarketer robocallers do call it or try to I have gotten em believe it or not during shows.

Actually, you might be the only one having that issue, I don't have it because I have my thing set to contacts only. Again, if you are having the issue and no one else is, look at what the differences might be when troubleshooting.

Not sure if that's a problem on Zoom.
But, Zoom has been plagued with session highjackers. Boy has that been a nasty time of it for zoomers.
Not to mention losing streams in the middle of sessions and not being able to log in.
Smiles, all programs have their moments of problems.

Hey Mike it’s Sheila. I just solved my problem. I had to uncheck the mute option so in other words when it says in the settings under audio to unmute on incoming calls, I had to check that box. It's fixed now. Yay! The only thing that missed lead me was the fact that when I did the audio test call with the Skype testing service I was able to hear my voice through the speakers of choice with the microphone of choice just fine I just was unaware of the box that I had to check for amusing myself on incoming calls. Glad I got that solved!

Hello, a friend of mine updated her skype on her desktop, sorry I should say it updated automatically. The problem is when the skype program is launched nothing is spoken. She is using NVDA screenreader. Can anyone please give me a solution to this problem.
