Skype icon orange blinking – how to stop?
The net result is that, when I’m not at my desk, I won’t notice that someone Skyped me unless I am specifically looking at my taskbar. Maybe even just display the message dialog window, but without stealing focus. I sometimes tweak VB macros in Excel that someone else wrote. I don’t leave mine on all the time either. I think we may be misunderstanding each other. The Skype for Business app is always running from the moment WIndows starts up.
That window shows all of my contacts. When someone else sends me a Skype message, a new tab? When I click on that taskbar tab, it opens a Skype conversation window. If I find something in the log that indicates that I received a Skype message, can that be monitored for in realtime by ahk? Conversation History Skype for Business conversations are saved by default. All conversations will be listed with the most recent on top; double click on one to open and view a conversation.
I’m aware of Conversation History in Outlook. But, I’m looking for a passive solution, not something that requires me to go looking to see if a new Skype conversation button appears in the taskbar. When someone uses Skype to message me, a new button appears in the taskbar, and it flashes for several seconds.
Can AutoIt capture that and then perform some action like displaying a dialog box without stealing focus from whatever app has focus? The point of not stealing focus is so that I’m not typing into “nothingness” when the new dialog pops up. I may type several sentences without looking at my monitor. In a previous life, the Domino email client was notorious for this, notifications popping up and stealing focus, and if you press Enter, presto – it disappears without a clue as to what the notification was.
You say you want a passive solution but actually want something actively looking for things to happen. You gonna have to make up your mind Before you set out your requirements. Best of luck. I apologize for the confusion. I’m not familiar with all the terminology. When I say that I want a passive solution, I mean that I shouldn’t have to do some action on my part to realize that I’ve received a Skype message, i. Passive to me is that there is some widget, AutoIt or some other, that sits in the background, monitoring for whatever process Skype uses to load the button for a new conversation on the taskbar or for a specific entry written to a log,.
I just need someone in my office to send me a Skype message to see what, if anything, gets logged. If I do, I’ll look for an AutoIt function that can read the log file and take it from there. Outlook would probably be your only way to do this with AutoIt I would think but I have not tested it. You need to be a member in order to leave a comment. Sign up for a new account in our community.

Old habit. Also, I guess I should be using the term “taskbar button” as opposed to “taskbar tab”. Best of luck Edited May 24, by Earthshine.
