There is an error in the Latest version of Skype which appears in some computers and not on every pc. It has appeared in my Windows 7 using Service Pack 1. Even on Windows 10 Technical Preview.
When i faced this error?
I faced this error when i upgraded to the skypes latest version in windows 7 and in Windows 10 Technical preview when i used a registry cleaning software. This question was asked plenty of times by Software users and some people even tried to answer by saying try to clear Skypes Appdata. Some said clear Skype folder temp or Uninstall and Re-Install software. But trying these trouble shooters will not fix this error at all. Actually there is no error in the software but how the windows is interacting with it.
If you just want to resolve the error with a click then download registry file below and run it. Otherwise to understand the issue read below.
The New Skypes "login" only is not based on application version but browser Css version coding and after you login it open the Skype Interface but Windows is opening it as Application and ignoring the Text and Css part involved on skype login page. If you do not understand what i am talking about just ignore it and lets go to the solution part and know how to fix skype broken Login Screen.
HOW TO FIX IT?
- Go to Start Menu and then Click on Run.
- Type regedit and hit Enter or Press Ok.
- Click on HKEY_LOCAL_Machine ---> Software ---> Classes --->.css
- When you will click on .css on the right side you will see an option Content Type just right click over it and Modify.
- Now just change its value data to text/css
After it press ok and just restart your skype and it will be normal again as below.
