I cant seem to get skype desktop on windows 8.1 to show bubbles for notifications like it did in previous windows versions.

I have already set "Control Panel--->All Control Panel Items--->Notification Area Icons" - To "Show icon and notifications" enter image description here Also in skype settings I have turned on the notifications for "comes online" and "sends me a message" Even the example appears correctly. enter image description here

But when I actually do receive a message the taskbar icon and system tray icon only blink with no "BUBBLE" enter image description here

However I do receive the "BUBBLE" when a contact comes online.

Is this just broken in windows 8? or am I missing something?
