Recently, despaired by Skype's lack of a Ctrl-Tab function (switching between conversations) and focus being on contact search rather than the message text area, I reluctantly switched to the Compact view, which does the job, although much less practical UI-wise.
But now, I'm facing a problem. Sometimes, I have a lot of windows open, and I receive a Skype message. Now, the number of windows makes Alt-tab impractical, so I click the Skype icon on the taskbar. But then, I am annoyed because I need to click the conversation, the main Skype window always being open.
Is there a way to tell Windows that when I click the Skype icon, I would like it to directly bring forth all Skype windows, on top of displaying the "window choosing dialog"?
