    Re: Unable to Pin Skype application to the taskbar in windows 8

    It would be unfortunate to hear that the Skype App downloaded from Windows App store can't be pinned to taskbar. Only the desktop version of skype 6 allows you to do the same. However you can do the same after downloading and installing skype directly from its official website.To do the same visit, http://www.skype.com and click on downloads and select computer for the device type where it will be installed. After that click on "get skype for windows 8". You download will start.After completion of download,install it on your computer and you would be able to pin it to the taskbar without any issue.

    Here is what you should do my dear friend.
    First of all go to search apps and type skype.
    You will be able to see the skype icon.
    Then you should right click on it and click on option that tells you to move it to desktop.
    Then after you have the skype app on your desktop you should click on it and drag it to the task bar and leave it there.
    Your skype will be pinned to task bar.
    Good luck!!!

    Hello
    ++++++++++++++follow this++++++++++++++

    ***********Skype work in a jail broken windows 8.

    ***********If would give a warning when it was installed itself at the first place.

    ***********If it is not, get the x Con from Lydia for jail broke detection by the apps.

    ***********Now x Con would help provide the adequate support to Skype covering up the fact that it is jail broken.

    ***********Then try working with it and see if you are able to connect to the video and audio.

    ***********If still get it to work delete the app and download the same from App store again.

    ***********On re installation, it would work fine.

    Re: Unable to Pin Skype application to the taskbar in windows 8

    First uninstall the app present in your system then download the app directly from the official web site

    to do the same


    • Go to the start screen by tapping in the windows key
    • Then tap on the browser tile and open it
    • Now browse for the Skype app when you find the app
    • then tap on the option downlaod
    • Then accept the terms and conditions to install the app
    • Then tap on the option install
    Now tap hold on the skype app icon then choose the option Pin to taskbar.Only the desktop version of the skype is able to pin to the taskbar.
    You can pin the app which is downloaded from the App store.
