Windows 10 users use Skype frequently for voice and video calls, which we can understand because it is a quality tool. Plus, for the first time in years, the desktop version of Skype doesn’t look like a’90s movie. You can say with certainty that Microsoft has done a good job since it took over Skype, but unfortunately there are still some problems.

One of the problems some users have had for some time has a lot to do with their inability to see each other when they make a Skype video call. You see, the other party can see well, but the user is not able to see himself in the small box in the corner. It’s a little frustrating to know that the other party has a chance, but you can’t tell if you’re in the right place in front of the camera.
