I couldn't quite figure out a appropriate heading. My issue is that when i get a skype call at home My Mobile My Laptop and my desktop all ring at the same time ! Has anyone solved this issue or do i need to spend a couple of hours figuring out a solution.


Skype only answers on one device at a time

I'm not sure why you think this is an issue? Skype allows you to sign in on multiple devices at a time. It rings on all, and you can choose which to answer on.

Solution: Either only log onto one machine at a time, or create a unique username for each device. That's it really/

You sure this isn't supposed to be in the First World Problems thread?

Only signing in to the device you'd like it to ring on is one solution.

I most likely wont worry about it It was just this morning when my sister called me on skype three devices went off and it seemed that i had to switch off all three as just answering one didn't stop the others from ringing

During the day i toyed with the idea of three separate accounts as i don't call many people on Skype but the windows 8 machine requires you to log out of your Microsoft account to change the Skype log in to much hassle and i don't want to have two Microsoft accounts

I will just have to remember to log out of the accounts

Tomorrow we work on world hunger!
