How to view snapshots in Skype
May 15, 2009
So, I got home not long ago, and remembered yesterday I was playing around with skype and took some ‘Snapshots’ of the video feed.
I just went to find them, and it was trickier than I had thought.
Yes, a flaw with Skype… I figured there would first be an option within skype to actually view them, or go to folder. Well, in a nutshell no.
Then I figured Program files. Well, I hit a dead end there too.
The answer is a little bit silly, and Im not sure if it’s Microsoft Vista, or Skype to blame. I’m going to say Skype, because there has never been issues with any other snapshot’s I have taken with other programs, such as WOW.
If you run Vista, you need to go to:
At the top, you should see a few buttons, ‘Organise’ and ‘View’
Hit organise, and then ‘Folder and search options’
Now you are there, you are going to need to change a setting. Go to the ‘Views’ tab. Mark the ‘Show hidden files and folders’ radio button.
OK that and you should see a folder which reads ‘AppData’
Open, then go to Roaming>Skype>Pictures.
Scroll down and they should be there!
Remember to undo the ‘Show hidden files and folder’ option, by repeating the exact same steps. If you want to, you can leave them on, it’s personal preference.
