Skype login screen missing or blank

Filed under: Other, Windows — Ishtiaque @ 11:50 pm

After researching a bit I come to know that this issue is due to Internet Explorer v10 in which there’s Javascript issue because latest version of skype uses javascript to show login screen.

1. I manage to resolve this issue after downgrading the Internet Explorer version 10 to version 9. Follow this link to uninstall IE v10 update and return back to IE 9:

2. There’s an other work around with limited skype functionality, if you don’t want to downgrade to IE 9.

Create a new shortcut of skype.exe and append /legacylogin to the shortcut target or path such as:

“C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe” /legacylogin
