Hi,

Try to open it from "All Programs". The icon you have on the desktop might be corrupted. But if you cannot open it in All Programs as well, you may need to uninstall then reinstall skype.

Hope this helps.

Can't open Skype error 1712


First:

Hi please click on your apple icon top left, click on "Force Quit", then Force Quite Skype if it's in the List.

Second:

Open Your Macintosh HD, usually top right, and go to your Applications folder, find and open your "Utilities" folder, now open "Activity Monitor", now you'll see a list of items, scroll through the list, if Skype is in the list, select it then in the top left of the box click on the "Force Quit" button.

Try Skype again, if this doesn't work try option 3

Third:

Download AppCleaner open it and then at the same time open your Applications folder where place your pointer over the Skype icon, and drag onto AppCleaner, once the delete button is active, click delete. This will delete all Skype files from your system.

Now go to Download Skype for Desktop and click the "Get Skype For Mac" button, install this new version of Skype and your done.

Happy Skype-ing, I hope this fixes your problem :-)

If it's your first time opening Skype: Open Skype on your computer.
That means double-clicking this icon on your desktop or choosing it from theWindows > Start menu. Having trouble? Launchit from here. This will open a start-up screen. Click Don't have a Skype Name?
This opens a Create account window. Type in your name, then create a Skype username(called a Skype Name) and a password. - Pick ones you can remember so you can sign in nexttime. - Follow the directions from there and click Sign in. If you've opened Skype before: Open Skype from your desktop or Windows - Start menu. In the start-up screen, click in the box under SkypeName and type it in. Then do the same for your password.
(If you forget your password, click the Forgot your password? link and followthe directions from there.) This will sign you in to Skype, ready for you to use. Happy Skyping Greetz Ganimidis

My Skype disappeared


Do you mean, you've uninstalled it? or was the icon lost from desktop?

First open "My Computer", then "C:" drive and again "All Programs" and locate a folder with the name "Skype" open it and again open the "Phone" folder, double-click the "Skype" icon you find there, if you want it to shown again on the desktop, right click, "Send to" and then "Desktop(Create shortcut)" it, close the window, now it should be there on the desktop. You can run it by clicking it again.

If you can't find it anywhere, you better reinstall it. Click here and download the skype, and after it's downloaded, run the program. You are done with it, all your contacts and IM's will be intact, there's nothing to worry about.

If you need further help, let me know with more details.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

for installing skype


Downloading and Installing Skype Step1 Go to the Skype Web site (see the Resources section below for links to download Skype for Windows, Mac, and Linux users) and download the SkypeSetup.exe executable. (The executable gets downloaded under the Program Files folder under a directory called Skype that gets automatically created. A Skype Setup icon is also automatically seen on your desktop.) Step2 Click on the SkypeSetup icon that is on your desktop. A Skype Setup wizard then appears. You will get a warning window asking if you want to Run or Save this file, SkypeSetup.exe. Click Run. Note: Another confirmaton message may come up asking if you are sure you want to Run this software. Click "Run" again. Step3 Follow the instructions on the Skype Setup Wizard to complete the installation of the Skype software. At the end of the installation you will be asked to setup a Skype account. Step4 A Skype window appears and if you have never used Skype before you have the option of creating a Skype account. A link is seen on that window mentioning the following: "Don't have a Skype name?" Click on this link and it opens up another "Skype - Create a New Account" window where you have to type in your Full Name and then you have to type in a "Skype Name" and a Skype "Password" and "Repeat Password" in the respective fields on that window. Note: Jot down this Skype Name and Skype Password as you will need it everytime you open the Skype application. Step5 Click on the "Sign in" button. Note: After having created this new Skype Name account for the first time, the next time you open Skype again, your Skype name will automatically appear in the Skype name field. All you need to do is to type in your Skype password and click the "Sign in" button. Step6 Follow the instructions in the "Getting Started" guide to "Add a Contact" using the "Add Contact" button, to test your headset and microphone using the "Skype Test Call Feature," to set up a Conference Call with a business colleague or friend, and to explore all the other features in Skype. Step7 Once you have installed the Skype software, there are 2 ways by which you can open the Skype software application. Click on the Skype icon on your desktop Or Double click on the "x" icon in your desktop's system tray to start Skype at any time. Note: Once the Skype window comes up, the "x" checkmark then changes to a green checkmark to indicate that the Skype application is currently running on your computer. It changes back to an "x" mark when you have "Signed out" of Skype and Skype is no longer running on your computer.
