So you’ve just downloaded the new Skype, and can’t get used to the new full screen user interface, infact you’re just amazed at how Skype could have changed the interface so much, you might even be furious.
Don’t worry, here is what you do to fix the problem.
1. Open up Skype 4 (it will start in full screen mode)
2. Click on the Compact View button (top right, next to minimize, maximize and close window). You can also click “View” from the menu option, and then click “Compact View”.
This will make Skype 4, look and feel like it should.
Update: Since Skype is now out of Beta, I thought I would upgrade my wifes laptop, she (without any tech experience) told me she hated the new skype, and wanted it back to the way it was.
