Skype Gadget is a Windows Vista Sidebar gadget developed by me. It comes to help Skype users who don’t want to go to this application every time they need to call/chat to someone.

It integrates with the Sidebar, displays all your contacts and gives you options for call and chat.

Uses Skype4COM, a component offered by Skype, in order to communicate with the program so it might need administrative rights on the first run because of DLL registration.

The features of version 1.2:

  • Contact list
  • Small list and big list (8 or 16 contacts displayed at once)
  • Start/end a call/chat with a contact
  • Displays contact status (Available, SkypeMe, Away etc.)
  • Call phone feature

System requirements:

  • Windows Vista
  • Skype
  • Internet access
  • Administrative rights on first run
