    How do I change the settings⁉
    After installing the new Skype UWP on my windows 10 PC I wanted to check the version (formerly in the menu-bar under about Skype) and set the options to show me Away if I am not at the PC for 3 minutes
    andt the notifications to stop telling me when someone signs on.
    Also I want to change to Split windows view‼

    [Updated ]
    In the older versions, Icould select between showing all my contacts or those contacted recently.
    How can I do this in Skype UWP⁈

    [Updated ]
    1.) How can I set after what time shows Skype me inactive. I used to set it to 3 minutes, in which time i may still be near enough to my PC to hear and answer the call.
    2.) There used to be a Skype icon in the systray, showing my network status.
    Why is it not there any more⁉
    3.) How can I turn off certain notifications⁉ 4.) why did the developers remove a number of useful features

      Hi! The Skype for UWP is still in active development, this iss why some functions are not yet implemented.
      If these features are important to you, I recommend you to install version

        I would prefer to install Skype 8.20, which I have already downloaded, but when I try to install it, it redirects me to install Skype 12. UWP.
        How can I install Skype 8⁉
