Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

            As an extension to a previously closed post, I am wondering how I can configure Skype following installation for the purpose of audio video chatting with friends and family.  My operating system is Windows 10 which is on my Acer laptop.

             Thank you

My company uses Skype for Business and I have it on start with Windows, however it is starting before my networking is all up and running.  I cannot find it under services to set it to being a delayed startup (this is Windows 10 pro).

Does anyone have a known way of delaying it for say 30 s so that other things it depends upon can start up?

I did more troubleshooting on the Skype issue, and found it is definitely a video issue.  Event viewer shows Event ID 4101: Display driver iqfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.  This happened after about 10 minutes on skype with anoter staff at the other office.  I noticed when the meeting is showing full screen performance is awful.  The mouse stutters slowly across the screen, and video seems inconsistent.  This happened on both ends.  We compared systems and both have i5’s of the same generation, and Intel HD 4600 video.  The one site system has 8GB of RAM, and another has 4 GB.  It looks like neither system is capable of handling skype maximzed without a serious performance issue, or crash.  While skype did freeze I was able to hear other IT support,  but not see him.  I stopped video, and then started it again.  please advise me what to do. Tomorrow we have an executive level conference between these 2 sites.

I have some Windows users with Skype for Business 365 Online. They occasionally get the message "Your connection is causing audio quality issues. Speeding it up might help. Try closing programs that are using the network and stop and downloads or uploads." It's not a network issue have looked closely at other metrics and non-windows Skype users don't have this issue. Is there any way to prioritize Skype for CPU and/or network? Thanks!

Currently we have a client who is essentially using Office 365 purely for the Office licences rather than for email. They just put in an on-premise Exchange 2016 server over the summer but one of the users would like to be able to use Skype for Business online but have it synchronize with her local Exchange profile for contacts.

Their Office 365 is currently still setup with a *****@*****.onmicrosoft.com account as they don't route email or anything else through it. It doesn't really make sense to me to hybridize the deployment as it is literally only one user who would ever use the Skype service, and they have no intentions in the foreseeable future to have any sort of mail delivery performed to Office 365.

What I'm wondering is if there is another way to have continuous synchronization of her contacts between the Office 365 account and her local account? And if the only option is to hybridize the deployment, can this be done to only allow for Skype for Business not email?

I need to initiate an uninstall of Skype for Business 2016 from a command line for mass uninstall across the company.  This will be deployed via SCCM.

I originally used setup.exe /admin to generate the MSP file which worked fine but now need to uninstall it and deploy a new MSP that does not contain a license key (we switched to KMS).

However, I don't know the structure of the command line to use nor do I know the product id.

Can someone assist with both?

What is the process for adding a ten digit (area code + seven digit phone number) phone number to an Office 365 Skype for Business (Lync) account?

I have an O365 enterprise license. If I give my users skype for business can they by default connect with any other S4B or do I need to change something. I assume the app is still available as I know there was talk about it becoming teams, thanks.

Hello!

I am in the process of migrating our users to Office 365 platform. We have pass-through authentication set up, most mailboxes are running from the cloud and I am looking at doing a cutover migration to "cloud" Skype servers next.

However, I am running into an odd issue with authentication.

It appears that any of the existing accounts who are migrating from on-premise cannot sign into Skype online. Newly created users can log in. Both types of users can log into their personal O365 portals and use web-based Skype client from inside their OWA interface.

When I am testing from my work laptop with a locally installed Skype client I cannot log in, but when I am using credentials for newly created account it works with no issues.

When I was testing by installing Skype on my home PC, which never had Skype/Office before and is obviously outside of corporate network (firewalls and proxies and all the jazz) I am seeing the same behavior - I cannot log in with my work account, but I can log in just fine with the newly created test account.

I might add that I went through the usual of wiping stored credentials, wiping cache files, download Skype from cloud versus using old installations and so forth.

M guess is that there is an issue with old account who were connected to local Skype OR there is an issue with all the account that were present on the domain before we started syncing to the cloud.

I am attaching the error message that I am seeing plus the …

Despite many attempts, I am unable to connect with Skype.com support.

I have Skype installed on a fully updated Windows 10 computer.

Even though I live and work in Canada, the installation identifies Skype's geographic base as England.

To change my Skype's geographic base from England to Canada is why I am trying to connect with Skype.com support.

Or maybe Experts, please, can you suggest a way to change Skype's geographic base from England to Canada?

Hi
Im interested to know what IT depts and business are doing with the above.
We went the route of Office 2016 product, not subscription for various reasons.

We have sharepoint 2012 foundation on-prem for our intranet.  No sharepoint online licences.  
Skype for business is deployed, but nobody uses it much apart from IT, with odd vidoe conference to a client.  What are people doing here with audting of conversations etc?  
No use of onedrive.

Office 2016 installed on desktops/laptops.
We allow remote access via cisco VPN.

Plan is to roll out sharepoint for a particular dept to share and work on files.  Had a quick look and see you feally need onedrive setup and sync'd in order to share personal docs with people via sharepoint, correct?  Also if wanting to edit the sharepoint/onedrive docs we need office online, correct?
Can we share unc paths or mapped server drives to onedrive and sharepoint?

Pointers? Ideas?

When ransomware hits your clients, what do you do?

MSPs: Endpoint security isn’t enough to prevent ransomware.
As the impact and severity of crypto ransomware attacks has grown, Webroot has fought back, not just by building a next-gen endpoint solution capable of preventing ransomware attacks but also by being a thought leader.

I'm having problems installing Skype on a fully updated Windows 10 computer.

I think the problem is that I have included in my Skype password this character --

which Skype seems to reject

Experts, please suggest a non-alphabetical and non-numerical character, that Skype does recognize.

I've just moved to a home office from a real-office and one challenge I face is 3-way calling.  I don't have to do this often, but about once / month or so I need to have a 3 way call.  Normally I use WebEx with VOIP.

I have a Skype account with a phone # (for calls in) and I can dial 1 third-party by #, but I can't find any way to call 2 other people by #.  The closest (and only) videos on youtube are all about using contacts.  These people are not my contacts and I'm not interested in creating some "fake" contacts and constantly changing their # to do this (if that even works).

Is there a way to simply dial-up one person via Skype and then dial-up another?  I can't find it.

We just bought annual plan for Office 365 Proplus and our major reason was to use Skype for Business which was included. I'm very new to Skype for Business. Below is what I've done so far:
1.      Created Office 365 users at the office.com portal and assigned licenses to them
2.      Initially used the default domain (abc.onmicrosoft.com) to create users
3.      Later created a custom domain for the company in the form of abc.com and made it default and changed the users to be @abc.com from previous @abc.onmicrosoft.com
4.      Installed Office 365 ProPlus on some client systems
5.      Created the 2 CNAME records required for Skype for Business at abc.com domain host
6.      Created the 2 SRV records required for Skype for Business at abc.com domain host
7.      Both the CNAME and SRV records created above are resolving properly at the DNS host when tested.
8.     When we launch Skype for Business client on our systems and try to sign-in, we get this error:  “Skype for Business couldn’t find a Skype for Business Server for abc.com…………………….”

The status of abc.com domain @ Office 365 Admin centre>domains is "Possible service issues" and further navigation gives the DNS errors below:
Incorrect DNS records
Any errors are highlighted below.
Nameservers used: ns1.thirdpartyhost.com, ns2.thirdpartyhost.com
If there are errors, correct the corresponding DNS records for abc.com at your DNS host.  (Not your DNS host?)
After correcting these records at your DNS host, refresh the page using the

The typo problem is that the email address that's needed in the downloading of Skype has a spelling error.

The typo persists even despite my use of Revo Uninstaller. This fails to delete the defective email address.

Is there any way of searching for, finding, and correcting the email address, Experts, please?
