How do I find a file I’ve been sent in Skype for Windows desktop?
Files that have been sent to you by your contacts can be found in the conversation history for that contact.
- Sign in to Skype.
- In the Contact list, click the contact who sent you the file. Your conversation history for that contact is displayed.
- Locate the file you were sent.
- Click Open file or Show in folder.
For a list of all files sent and received, in the menu bar click View > Files sent and Received. The list will show you who sent you the file, the name of the file, date and time it was sent. Using this information, you can locate the file in the conversation history with your contact. You can’t open files from the Files Sent and Received list.
