Insert plus h, if you've downloaded the scripts from http://www.dlee.org.
Also, enable the use keyboard shortcuts in the Skype preferences. Pickup is
alt+pageUp, hang up is alt+pageDown. These are skype commands. You can
assign your own keyboard combos if you'd like, all in the preferences.
 
HTH, D!J!X!

Greetings from down under. I have another question about skype. How do I
find a list of keyboard commands like answering a call and making a call and
so on? Thanks much for all the help you can give. 

 

May the Peace of God which passes all understanding guard your heart and
mind in Christ Jesus. God bless you!

Yes, you need to enable programs to use the system tray. If using windows7,
do this:

 

1. Press windows key, then escape to get out of start menu.

2. Press alt+Enter to enter task bar and start menu properties.

3. On the taskbar properties page, shift tab back to the "Notification Area
Customize" button.

4. In this window, you can select from either of 3 options for the listed
icons. These icons here are programs that have tried to access the windows
system tray, so it places them in here. The  options are: 1. "show icons and
notifications," 2. "hide icon and notifications," or 3. "only show
notifications."

5. You can either set these options for each program manually, but you'll
have to do this everytime a new program is added that uses the system tray
for that program. Your other option, which is more of the xp and vista
behaviour is to tab over to the box that says "Show all icons and
notifications on the system tray" and check it. This will make windows show
any program that needs the tray and will not block them.

If you don't want to have a clutter of system icons you dont use, like
volume, network etc, select the "Turn system icons on and off" link, and
choose off for whatever system icons you don't want.

 

Regarding your skype issue, if you're using the latest skype version, go to
options, arrow down to advance, then uncheck the box that says "keep skype
on the taskbar while I'm signed in." This will cause skype to minimize to
the windows tray when you close it.

Also, if this ever happens to anybody, just alt shift f4 twice quickly to
unload skype from memory.

 

HTH, D!J!X!

I don't know if it's a windows 7 thing but I can't find skype in the system
tray. I have other programs that are not showing up in the system trae as
well. Thanks for the help.

I believe that this is because when you press alt+f4 in skype, it minimizes
to the system tray. To fully quit skype, go to the system tray, click on
skype, and then go to quit.

Hth,

Has anyone had a problem with Skype in windows 7 home premium 64 bit where
the program will not close? It will not even close when I press ault f4. I
have to close it by going to the task manager. If anyone has experienced
this problem, how did you fix it? If you have never experienced this problem
and you would like to help me trouble shoot this problem please let me know
I'm open.
