My Skype menu bar is missing
  

Does any individual know where the menu bar may be hiding? I actually downloaded Skype, but there's no menu bar to demonstrate to me where to choose Contacts, etc. It would be ideal if you assist me at the nearest conceivable opportunity.

  • If you don't mind stop any and all running Skype Client systems on your framework.
  • Utilizing your Windows Control Panel Add/Remove Programs uninstall Skype, when provoked to recovery your history, decide on yes.
  • Utilizing Windows File Explorer ("What you utilize to see documents with") do:
  • %appdata%\skype
  • Since you spot a file called shared.xml right click on it and choose erase.
  • Since you see an organizer for the Skype name being referred to, click on it, in the event that you see a document called Config.xml right click on it and prefer erase.

Re: My Skype menu bar is missing

I've got Windows XP, about four years old, running on a Dell laptop. I've uninstalled Skype from Add/Remove Programs now four times, cleaned the file folders of all Skype organizers and documents, reinstalled Skype's most current beta version, and every last time I try not to have my device bar. It is entirely disappointing. No Tools, Contacts, nothing, simply the alternate Skype sheets. I'm visiting the United States and paid for a 1 gigabyte AT&T Internet access card. Each and every Skype download is fetching me about 2%, so now I've utilized up over 8% of that card just on downloading Skype.

Try to reset Internet Explorer to its default settings (paying little mind to the network program you set as default). Moreover clear cache; erase temp virtual world files, searching history, and so on. You are able to additionally attempt to disable/remove unused or plausibly adulterated web voyager join-ons or plugins. Then perversion a complete Skype uninstall.

Re: My Skype menu bar is missing

I have reinstalled Skype twice on my computer. I have a Toshiba Satellite p105-s6104 laptop and run a Logitech webcam with assembled-in microphone. It works fine on skype but the mic tries not to. I needed to adjust the settings but found no menu bar show.

Re: My Skype menu bar is missing

I've uninstalled and reinstalled such a large number of times over the final some weeks my cerebrum is dead. Additionally I've manually erased stuff, cleaned the registry and whatnot but nothing has worked. I'm a paying client with an animated file and every last trace of the support we are able to get is from someone who makes a point not to work for Skype inferring the same thing over and over again.

Re: My Skype menu bar is missing

I have the same problem where I can not find the menu bar for my Skype application. However, I am using Macpro and hence the Apple's version.

Can someone set me straight on how to receive the menu bar?

Thank you.

Can you confirm that you have downloaded and installed the Skype application itself? Skype calls are made from the application, not from the website. If you've installed Skype, clicking on the 'Add Contact' button will get you where you want to be. I think that in this case, it's Skype->Preferences->Chats. The option is on the bottom.
