Skype Desktop Shortcut

  Angry Kid 22:05 17 May 2007


Just installed the new version and the desktop shortcut is not displayed correctly.

How can I correct this?

Hi, right-click on Icon then Properties and on Change Icon, you should then see a selection of Skype icons, just take your pick then click on Apply?OK.

Thanks for your post.

However, 'Change Icon' is greyed out. Do you have any more thoughts?

In that case, open Skype and then go to Help and click on Check for updates, download and install latest version, this will probably sort it.

If for any reason the above does not sort it, run CCleaner from click here

Thank you for your continued postings.

Unfortunately, your suggestions have not resolved my issue. I always update to the latest version of Skype and run CCleaner on a regular basis.

I have uninstalled Skype and reinstalled, and the desktop icon issue is still not resolved.

Does anyone else have any thoughts as to what the cause may be?

Thanks again.

When you say 'not displayed correctly' what exactly does the icon look like then?

also ..

Have you tried asking Skype's Customer Support under Help!
