Where Does Skype Store Pictures and Downloaded Files? –

I’ve updated my Skype to the latest version and the settings page lacks a lot of useful options imho. For now, I need to change a default folder for downloads, but I didn’t manage to find any option where i can do it. Hello DmitriyShcherba ,. For you to change the download folder, you can follow the steps below:. Was this reply helpful?

Yes No. Sorry this didn’t help. Thanks for your feedback. The easies way to see location of this folder is to right click on any downloaded file and select Show in folder. Let’s imaging that a friend of mine did send me a file in a while and after that we chat a lot And now I remembered that I already received a file from him, but I can’t just browse to this file with Explorer to my known downloads folder I should to scroll to the location in a chat with my friend when he did send me that file And what if this can be 25 screens to scroll?

That’s what about everybody talking here. If you want to have the option to specify the folder where the received files will be downloaded, then you should install the classic Skype for Windows Desktop application.

Not only this, but many other customization options not available on Microsoft Skype UWP application, are available on the classic application. You can install the classic Skype for Windows Desktop using this installer link:. With the Windows 10 UWP app, not only can you not specify where to save files so you can find them easily later, they refuse to put even a simple link in their app to open up that folder in the menu or settings.

It’s left to the user to wonder where the hell their file went, especially if they happened to download it, intending to see it later, and then when they log in, find out that the reference to that download had completely disappeared from the chat they were having some time in the past.

The file is still there. Unfortunately, you can’t find it now without either asking the person to send it again wasting bandwidth , or hunt around on the internet to find whatever arcane file location Microsoft chose to store the file in in the first place! Even better yet I get that UWP apps are incredibly sandboxed Agreed IPBoss.

I share your frustration with the reduced function of the latest version of Skype, which seems to continue Microsoft’s baffling hostility towards power users. Where’s my control panel now? Dev’s, if you are listening, pretty toggle switches are no replacement for a real options menu.

My workaround for the baked-in download location is to right-click the Skype message containing the file and select “Save As”. This brings up the familiar dialog box and lets you choose your destination. This is not helpful and a complete stupid design! Why the hell user has to dive so deep to find a simple setting? I’ll uninstall it and switch back to old version.

In reply to Danny Sosa’s post on January 9, I can only agree, the options in the old version was much better, now I dont get to chose where files should be saved, I can still right click and save as but still.

Also I can’t customize the audio notifications, it’s either audio off or on, and even after I set it to off I still get the annoying sound when someone writes to me when the skype window is minimized, the only way to make it go away was to turn off notifications about chat messages, the little text box that would pop up at the buttom of the screen letting you know that someone wrote to you, after I turned this off the sound for that was gone, but I would like to still have this popup just without the sound that comes with it, but now I cant because of all the changes they made in this new skype version.
