How to Make Skype Work on a Toshiba

by Chad Buleen

Though Skype is an advanced program that allows users to speak to and see one another while using an Internet connection, it is also a straightforward program to operate. Getting Skype to work on a Toshiba laptop is similar to getting Skype to work on other laptops that run on Microsoft Windows operating systems. You can get Skype to work in a matter of a few moments. To make a video call, the person you are calling must also have Skype.


Download Skype to your Toshiba computer using the link in Resources. You will be prompted to create a login and a password before you can download the program.


Double-click the "Skype" icon on your desktop to start the program.


Click "New" in the Skype window that opens and select "New Contact."


Type the name of the person you want to call in the search box. Click "Find." Skype will search its database of users and provide you with a list of Skype users who match the name you typed. The list includes users' full names and Skype user names.


Click the name of the person from the list you want to add. Click "Add contact."


Click the "Name" that you just added in the "Contacts" list.


Click the "Video Call" button. You will now be connected to your contact.
