    I need help with the new Skype. I just updated it and the new look is confusing me. Here are a couple of things that I was able to do before but now I can't anymore:

    - I used to be able to separate the video window from the contact list
    - With the separated window of the contact list and Video call, I was also able to put the video always on top. So whatever I'm doing, even if I'm browsing, the Video call is still on top and visible. But now I can't seem to do that anymore.

    Anyway I can still do this? I tried looking for options on the preferences and file menu, but I can't find it.

    And one thing I don't like now is when I call, there's this small window "Current Call" that just appears when my Skype window is behind other applications or browser. and seems to me that it is irremovable, which is kind of annoying. Is there any possible way to just disable this small window?

    Help me please, if anyone here knows. Thanks!

    The only solution: Re-download 2.8.

    Oh, and delete version 5. It's terrible.
