Help! The New Skype Window is Huge!

After installing Skype 4 I almost fell out of my chair. The new skype was huge! It was taking up half my laptop screen.

I fiddled around for quite some time to get it back to the way the old skype was.

Here’s the easy way to do it:

  • In the top right cornerof the new Skype window there is a row of 4 icons.
  • The leftmost icon in this row looks like two windows slightly overlapping.


  • Click this icon to separate the chat window from the contact list. These can now be individually resized.


Why skype made that sort of stick-it-all-together-in-one-cumbersome-lump approach default choice I will never understand.
