    How can I see several conversations next to each other?

    It’s possible to show instant message conversations in separate windows. To do so:

    1. Sign in to Skype.
    2. In the menu bar, click View.
    3. Select Compact View.

    Each time you double-click a contact to start a new conversation with them, the conversation will open in a separate window. Each window can be scaled and moved around your screen, which means you can organize them in a way that works best for you.

    To get back to the default view, simply click View in the menu bar and select Default View.
