How do I receive Skype files?

When someone tries to send you a file in Skype, the file is displayed in your conversation window.

To accept the files:


1. Click Save as.

2. A window is displayed warning you that files can contain viruses and asking you to reconfirm receipt. Tick the box if you don’t want this window to be displayed again.

3. Choose a location to save the file.

4. After the file has been saved to the location that you have selected, you can open it by clicking Open file. Alternatively, click Show in folder to display the location where the file has been saved.
