    I noticed that on my laptop if I spell something wrong in Skype IMs, it will underline it red like it does in browsers, text documents, etc. How can I get this on my desktop? Is it a setting in Skype?

    Go to tools, and then go to options, and then under options pick "IM Settings". I took a screenshot to show exactly where you can enabled it.

    I'm not sure where clicking on the "Go to your PC settings" will take you, but I'm on Windows 8 and it takes me to this page here

    My desktop has Windows 7, and I'm not seeing that option:

    Perhaps it's only available on Windows 8, which my laptop has, but are there different versions of Skype depending on your Windows version? Isn't all the same?

    I did a test quickly with one of my friends running Windows 7, and apparently spell check is only an option for Computers running Windows 8 and 8.1. I think it has something to do with the fact that you have to enable it in your Windows 8 PC settings, so it isn't really a 'Skype' option but a Windows 8 one that they interrogated into Skype.
