In Windows 8.1, you don’t sign out of Skype

Kathleen Atkins

Lounge member Skilts used Skype before he upgraded to Windows 8.1. After the upgrade, he was locked out of Skype.

This was the original problem that brought him to the Social Media forum for help. In his efforts to solve his locked-out-of-Skype problem, he brought fresh news to the forum: now he’s in, but he can’t sign out. The same might apply to you.

The following links are this week’s most interesting Lounge threads, including several new questions for which you might have answers:
