skype & microsoft account
« on: January 12, 2014, 06:36:03 PM »

I have been using skype with my W8 laptop for over six months.  Yesterday when using skype I got a log in screen for my microsoft account with the message 'we will save this information so that you can use your account with skype'  I don't wish to do this but I am unable to cancel this log in screen, each time I click on cancel the log in screen just comes back again.  I did manage to log into skype yesterday without this log on screen appearing.

Any ideas on how I might get rid of this log in screen.

Thanks

Hi,

With windows 8, the built in version of Skype to my knowledge can only be used now in the way you have described. However You can still down load the full Skype client which you should be able to use with out logging to M$ live.

Thanks for your reply.  What I don't understand is why I should get this log on screen when I have been using skype for six months or so without it appearing.
