    I have the desktop version of Skype on my desktop, laptop and Surface Pro, I would like to have it on the Stream as well.

    Given that MS are dropping the "Modern" app version anyway, the only way to use Skype on the Stream 7 will be the desktop version anyway.

    It isn't urgent as I have my 1520 so would tend to use that for Skyping when out, but I would like the option to use the Stream

    The problem is an odd one, the screen on the Stream 7 isn't perfect as the tick box to accept the Skype terms and conditions doesn't show up (It would be just off the bottom right corner) so I can never accept the terms so the install doesn't carry on.

    Also the window for the Skype desktop install only has a full screen or minimize option, you can't make it smaller so you can scroll.

    Any help appreciated
