To send an instant message:
If someone sends you an instant message when you are not looking at the chat window, an orange number will be displayed in the upper right corner of your main Skype window.
Click the orange number to open the chat window and see the message.
Other things you can do in a chat window are described in the table below.
If your contacts are offline , you can send them SMS text messages or call them on their mobiles or landlines. All you need is a little Skype Credit or a monthly subscription.
