Welcome to JustAnswer!

You mean that you have no skype icon on your desktop?

and when you open skype, it is not in English?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

That is correct, I can't say that when I open skype, I don't get English, because I haven't bene able to open the thing yet, the non-English boxes come up on the screen, and I can't remove them unless I click on "Start"

Tech Support Specialist: namstech, Electrical Engineer replied 8 years ago

Did you download and install the English version?

Yes

When you Run The Installation of Skype, the first screen that appears asks you to select the language of installation.

It seems that you had mistakenly selected some other language which now you can see as the Skype language.

It is recommended to uninstall Skype and then re-install Skype while making sure that on the first screen you select English as the language.

Thank you, I'll do that, but it doesn't explain why there's no icon on my screen, and why I can't sign in to skype

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
