Help Windows Desktop

I used to use Messenger, what do I need to know about Skype for Windows desktop?

James is probably the city’s most stylish accountancy student – and an expert on training shoes and trading currencies. He used to use Messenger with a webcam, but since he got a new PC, he updated to Skype to keep in touch with his girlfriend... and to get hold of his broker via IM when it’s time to make a trade. 

Adding new contacts is easy. Click on the Add a contact button at the top or use the search bar at the top to search by name, Skype Name or Microsoft account. Of course, all your Messenger contacts have already been merged to Skype. If there’s someone you haven’t seen for a while, why not give them a video call – free from one Skype user to another.
