New account, no friends appear online

Hi there, I just opened a new Skype account, but every time I log in no friends appear to be online although I know they are..? I've added them successfully. Could it be that they haven't accepted my add?

Really appreciate some help.. Been confused about this for a while.

Thanks,

Mat

Hi Mat,

more a checklist than a solution...

Do your friends appear in the list with a question mark? In that case they have not replied to your invitation (or they have blocked contact with people not already in their list.)

Just to make sure you're online: call "echo123" - type that in the filed for the phone number and record a message. When it plays back - is everything fine? If not, something is wrong with your setup.

Check your (Windows) firewall and ensure that "Skype.exe" is listed in the exceptions.

Check your router and ensure that UPnP ports are forwarded to port# 63492. (This should be done automatically, but if you have a chance, try to check it.)
The port number is the same as in Skype (Tools>Options>Advanced>Connection). Check the box to use port 80 and 443 as alternatives.

Check the options and see if there is anything that would block incoming calls.

If you succeed, please leave a comment here. If not, do the same and we'll go form there.

Good luck

I created a Skype account and now i have no idea how to delete it .


Unlike some other programs, Skype does not allow you to actually delete your account.
This means you will still show up if and when others search for you or try to add you as a contact.
You can, however, delete your Skype account from your PC.
Doing so removes the account in question from the list of options available when you sign into Skype.
Log out of Skype and quit the program entirely.
Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of your screen, then type "run" (without quotes) into the "Search programs and files" field that appears.
Click the Run option under Programs in the list of results.
This opens a new window.


Enter the term "%appdata%\skype" into the new window. Do not include the quotation marks.
Click "OK." This opens another new window.


Locate the folder that has the same name as the account you wish to delete in the list that appears in this new window.
Right-click this folder, then click "Delete" in the list of options that appears.
Click "Yes" in the window that pops up to ask if you are sure you wish to delete the folder.
You have now successfully deleted the Skype account from your PC.

When I go to facebook it always goes to https not http. How do i change this


How do you enable HTTPS? First, you go to "Account" on the upper right of your screen, and select "Account Settings." From there, you go down to "Account Security" and click "Change," which will allow you to enable HTTPS browsing. It will also let you receive an email when a new computer or device logs into your account, if you so choose.Facebook's second security update is an authorization feature--"social authentication"-- that will activate if suspicious activity occurs on your account (logins in Beijing and Berlin one hour apart, for example) and is intended to verify that your account belongs to you and has not been compromised.Facebook will test your identity by asking you to identify pictures of your friends, in a personalized update of more familiar CAPTCHA technology. "We will show you a few pictures of your friends and ask you to name the person in those photos. Hackers halfway across the world might know your password, but they don't know who your
