  2. When I have a Skype instant message conversation on my Android phone and I later wake up my Windows 10 laptop to continue the conversation on that, I find that none of the messages from the conversation that I have had using my phone are displayed in the Skype for Windows app except for the very last one. In other words if I want to refer to a previous message in the conversation, or if I want to save a photo or a video from it, I can't.

    Messages from previous conversations held using the laptop, as well as previous last messages from the phone, are however displayed.

    Is there a way to force the Skype for Windows app to display all the messages?

    :)

    Messaging App not sending texts?

    Wait...

    So, just to be clear?

    • Windows 10 phones sync both Skype and SMS messages in Messaging app.
    • Windows 10 phones can send and receive Skype and SMS messages in Messaging.
    • Windows 10 PC syncs only Skype messages in Messaging.
    • Windows 10 PCs can send Skype messages in Messaging, but can only send SMS via Cortana?

    Is that right, or have I missed something? That makes Messaging on PC kinda pointless, as, well, why wouldn't you just keep using the Skype desktop application? Skype for Windows 10 losing messages :p

    I don't use the skype app.....that said, there may be a sync issue between the 2. Check the settings on the laptop skype app and then do the same on the phone app and compare the 2 side by side. Then change as needed.
