Microsoft’s Skype is ready to start a new era of instant messaging and online communication networking. Many useful new features are introduced in Skype 2.2 by Microsoft. You need to upgrade your current operating system to 8.1, so then you’ll be able to install Microsoft’s Skype 2.2.
Multitasking and split display is the one of the new features that is introduced in Skype first time. You can open Skype alongside any other application you’d like to use. Drag the tile of the application anywhere to the screen (left or right) and the screen is split to display Skype and the application side by side. You can expand or extend the size of Skype home window by sliding the splitting bar to left or right.
Microsoft introduced many keyboard shortcuts for Skype 2.2. To get back immediately to the previous screen you can use Backspace button on your keyboard. To hide or show the application bar, use the ALT+Z key combination on your keyboard.
Using Skype 2.2, you don’t need to press Call button as you had to do in previous Skype versions. For dial any number you just need to type phone number in the dialer screen and press Enter on your keyboard. It has never been easy like that.
There is another useful shortcut. To answer calls, set keyboard focus on the notification by using Windows+V key combination on your keyboard. The new shortcuts make Skype 2.2 even more accessible. Skype 2.2 is available for free download at Microsoft Windows 8.1 store.
