There is an error in the Latest version of Skype which appears in some computers not every pc so it appeared in my Windows 7 using Service Pack 1 and also Windows 10 Technical Preview. I faced this error when i upgraded to the skype’s 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 Skype users and some people even tried to answer by saying try to clear Skype Appdata, Some say clear Skype folder temp or Uninstall and Re-Install skype but doing this will not fix this error at all because actually there is no error in the Skype but how the windows is interacting with the software.
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.
Registry for skype (TechniciaEarth-Screenfix)
The New Skype “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.
- 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.
