Part II. As You Like It: Skype Your Way

As You Like It: Skype Your Way

In this part ...

In this part, you discover how to fine-tune your Skype settings and personalize your profile. You also get the full scoop on online chatting through Skype, including how to use chats one on one and in a group setting, and save, bookmark, and organize your chats. We show you how to find that needle-in-a-haystack piece of information from a prior chat as well as how to share files instantly with other skypers.

This part also gets you set up with using video through Skype and shows you how to make calls out to regular old telephones from your computer using SkypeOut. You also find out how to receive telephone calls that you can answer through Skype on your computer — using a service called (as you can guess) SkypeIn.
