How do I make stop Skype from making numbers on websites dialable

Skype has this feature that makes any number on a website into this link that calls the number via Skype when clicked. Visually, numbers appear in a gray box with the US flag on the left and a green phone icon on the right.

I want to turn that off, but I can't find where to do it. Help! :)

    Nevermind, I just figured it out. For anyone else who needs to know, if you have a Skype icon on your browser's toolbar, you can click it and you'll be able to uncheck the option to turn "number highlighting" on.

Open your browser and look for the blue Skype icon in the upper right-hand corner (icon should be blue with an "S" and "123" with a green phone image.

Click on the Skype icon.

A window will pop up asking you if want to "Turn number highlighting on". Uncheck the box to disable and click "OK".

Anytime I try to talk to somebody , my skype stop working. please help me


First thing first, I would reinstall it, or make sure that you have an updated version. It sounds so miniscule, but it usually does the trick. If that does not work, I would contact Skype technical support.

Before doing so here is the standard list FYI:
To make a video call, you and the person you are calling will need:
Here is the connections trouble shoot website:

Im anew account from skype


Installation
Download Skype from the Skype website (see Resources), choosing to "Install" and "Run" the program when prompted by your PC.
Double-click the Skype icon on your desktop to open Skype. A small window, titled "Welcome to Skype" will pop up, prompting you to type in your Skype name and password--if you don't have one, click on the option under the "Skype Name" input form titled "Don't Have a Skype Name?"
Input your details into the "Create a New Skype Account" window that pops up. It asks for your full name and email, and you will have to create a Skype name and password. Click "I Agree-Create Account" once you are done and have perused the Skype license agreement. The Skype interface will come up, from where you can make calls and video chat--you will be logged in under the Skype name you just created.

Using Skype
Find contacts--friends or family also on Skype--by clicking on the upper left-hand menu item in the Skype interface named "Contacts." Click on "New Contact" and input your friend's full name, email or Skype name and click "Find." Alternatively, click "Import Contacts" from the "Contacts" menu to import contacts from a number of various programs, such as existing Facebook, Hotmail and AOL accounts.
Contact another Skype user on their computer by clicking on his name in the "Contacts" panel on the left side of the Skype interface. This will bring up a number of options in the right-hand panel of the Skype interface. Click on the green button that says "Call" to make a voice call to this person's Skype account. Click on the green button that says "Video Call" to make a video call to this person's Skype account. Type an instant message into the text box at the bottom of the Skype interface to start an IM conversation with this person.
Call a land line or cell phone from Skype by clicking on the "Call Phones" button on the bottom left of the left-side panel of the Skype interface. This will bring up a large number pad in the right-hand panel of the interface, but you need Skype Credit in order to call.
Click on the "Buy Skype Credit" in the small box on the far right of the right-hand Skype interface panel. This takes you to a secure page. Follow the prompts to enter your billing address and credit card number, and your Skype Credit will be loaded. Go back to the "Call Phones" page and enter the phone number you wish to call, then press the large green button that says "Call."

Cannot get skype camera to come on on an existing account


I can't get my webcam to work

1. Check that your webcam is switched on and plugged into your computer

2. A webcam can only be used by one application at a time, so make sure you don't have any other applications open that are accessing the webcam, e.g. other instant messaging applications or even some websites.

3. Problems with video are often caused by driver issues. A driver is the program you install with the webcam which makes the webcam work with your computer (some webcams use preinstalled drivers so you may not have had to install one). Make sure you have the latest driver installed. You can download and install the most recent drivers from the webcam manufacturer's website.

To test your webcam go to the Skype menu > Preferences > Video and tick the box Enable Skype Video. When Skype is able to use your webcam, you will see a video preview of yourself.

Skype Goes OutBy VERNE G. KOPYTOFF

Millions of Skype users were unable to make calls for several hours on Wednesday because of technical problems that the Internet telephone service is still trying to fix.

Some users were unable to log in. For others who were already logged in, the service simply crashed.

Skype said in a blog post that it started investigating the problem after noticing that the number of people on its service was unexpectedly falling. Fixing the problem may take several hours, the company said, adding that it may be longer before other features like group video calling are restored to normal.

The troubles come as Skype, which spun off from eBay last year, prepares for an initial public offering. Meanwhile, Tony Bates, Skype's new chief executive, is trying to find new ways to make money outside the company's main business of charging users to call from their computers to landline and mobile phones.

The failure does not exactly help Skype's sales pitch to consumers as an alternative to traditional phone carriers. Nor does it reassure businesses, which Skype is trying to court as customers as part of its expansion plans.

Usually, Skype's service is problem-free.

Skype said the downtime was being caused by "supernodes," which are computers that "act a bit like phone directories" and enable callers to connect with others. Many of those "supernodes" - of which there are normally a large number - were taken offline by a problem with some versions of Skype's software, the company said.

Engineers are working to create "new 'mega-supernodes' as fast as they can, which should gradually return things to normal," Skype said.

Later on Wednesday, Skype posted a message on Twitter saying that its service was gradually returning to normal, but that it would still take several hours for all users to be able to sign in again.

Skype has 124 million active monthly users, as of June 30. Of those, only 8.1 million pay anything.
Mr. Bates has described himself as a fan of Skype's infrastructure, which has handled as many as 25 million users simultaneously.
