  • People on Skype can not hear me. Why?

    Original title; Micro

    I'm talking to people on Skype but my built-in microphone is not picking up my voice. Why is this?


    1. what operating system do you use?

    2. not this problem occurs only with Skype or with other applications?

    3. have you made changes on your computer?

    Method 1:

    Step 1:

    I suggest you to follow the steps and check.

    1. the microphone isn't close to pick up your voice. Make sure that the microphone is positioned close enough and you speak directly into it.
    2. the microphone is muted. Some microphones have an external control for muting. Make sure that the mute control is disabled.
    3. the microphone input level is too low. Make sure that the microphone input level is set correctly.
    4. the microphone connections are not properly attached.
    5. a different microphone is selected to be used with speech recognition.

    Step 2:

    To adjust the microphone input level, try the following steps.
    1. Open Audio devices and sound themes by clicking the Start button, click Control Panel, hardware and sound, and then clicking sound.
    2. click on the recording tab.
    3. double-click on the microphone you are using speech recognition.
    4. click the levels tab and then use the slider to adjust the entry level for your microphone.

  • My iPhone and iPad are not visible to my Macbook Pro in parachuting, but they are visible to the other... How can I solve this problem?

    How can I fix?  iPhone and iPad are visible to each other in parachute drop but they does not see my Macbook Pro.

    Greetings brsm1990,

    Thank you for using communities Support from Apple!

    I understand that your iOS devices can see each other with the help of parachuting, but your Mac does not see them. To begin troubleshooting, I suggest you read the information in the following article.

    Use AirDrop to send the contents of your Mac - Apple Support

    Tips for sending items

    If you do not see the recipient in the AirDrop window or sheet:

    • Make sure that the two devices have on AirDrop and are less than 30 feet (9 meters) on the other.
    • If you send to an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch:
      • Your Mac must be a 2012 model or newer with OS X Yosemite or later.
      • The iOS device must use iOS 7 or later and have Personal Hotspot disabled in settings > cellular.
    • If you send a Mac:
      • If the receiver Mac uses OS X Mavericks, Cougar or Lion, then open a window AirDrop: choose go > AirDrop in the menu in the Finder bar.
      • If the receiver Mac is a 2012 model or, click "Don't see you looking?" in the drop window or the sharing of the sending of the Mac spreadsheet. Then click on "Search for an older Mac."
      • Know if the Mac has "block all incoming connections" enabled in the security and privacy preferences. A Mac does not receive items using AirDrop if this setting is enabled.
    • If AirDrop on the receiving device is set up to receive points of contacts only, make sure that the two devices are connected to iCloud. Also make sure the associated e-mail address or phone number to your identifier Apple is in the Contacts application on the receiving device.

    Release system requirements

    Send items to an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, or to receive these devices, you need a 2012 model or later Mac with OS X Yosemite or later version, except the Mac Pro (mid-2012).

    To send items to another Mac, you must:

    • MacBook Pro (Late 2008) or later, excluding the MacBook Pro (17 inch, late 2008)
    • MacBook Air (late 2010) or later version
    • MacBook (Late 2008) or later, excluding the white MacBook (Late 2008)
    • iMac (early 2009) or later version
    • Mac Mini (mid-2010) or later version
    • Mac Pro (early 2009 with AirPort Extreme card or mid-2010)

    Learn how to identify your model of MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac, Mac minior Mac Pro.

    I know you said that your Mac does not see your iOS devices, but your iOS devices sees the Mac?

  • Web cam problem, using Skype... I can see other people, but they cannot see me...

    original title: web cam problem

    using Skype... I can see other people, but they cannot see me...


    Be sure to contact the Skype Support like this might be a known issue and they might have the solution.
    There is also information and on the Skype Forums.

    Skype - Support

    Skype - Forums

    Also check with the manufacturer of the system, their drivers and documentation support online and ask
    their forums (if any).


    You will probably need to reload the drivers of the device and any camera control software.

    Login as an administrator.

    Double-click Control Panel / Device Manager - Imaging - writing down of the brand and model of camera.
    on this subject and on the tab of the driver is version. Now, click on update drivers (who are unable to do anything as MS
    is far behind the pilots of certification). RIGHT click on the camera - UNINSTALL - REBOOT - it
    will update the driver stack.

    Now, go to the system manufacturer's website and download the latest driver for the camera and the other related camera
    software (if not more recent get the same).

    Download - SAVE - go to them and RIGHT CLICK - RUN AS ADMIN - reboot after each driver.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    How to install a device driver in Vista Device Manager

    Then let windows updates on however prevent loading of drivers who are often older than the
    those that you have installed. If updates suggests a pilot and then HIDE it and watch manually to see if their
    really is a more recent version (at the time system manufacturer and the sites of the manufacturer of the device).

  • How to stop messages from Skype that suddenly appears on my screen when other people use my computer? using windows 8

    How to stop messages from Skype that suddenly appears on my screen when other people use my computer?  using windows 8, but I can't control these messages (sometimes very) distracting to appear?


    If you are allowing others to use the computer, set up a new account for each user.  They would then not be able to display your desktop or Skype messages.


  • Hi guys. on the macbook in System Preferences &gt; sharing there is a box at the top that says "computers on your local network can access your computer at:" means that other people can access my computer?

    Hi guys. on the macbook in system preferences > sharing there is a box at the top that says "computers on your local network can access your computer at:" means that other people can access my computer?

    "Your local network" is the computers that are on the same router as you. At home, this is your family.

    to: "computer name" is the name of the computer, they will see.

    Access is provided for items you decide to activate, usually file sharing. For sharing of files, ONLY the items that you specify in the file sharing dialog box details panel is accessible and be only users you EXPLICITLY list by username.

  • How can I stop people deleting files other people created in windows 7?

    How can I stop people deleting files other people created in windows 7? I've had this settings in windows XP. a public folder where no one can delete the files that they did not create. only the creator has been able to delete the folder.

    Please notify.

    Thank you!

    You can do almost the same way in Windows 7.  Basically you right click on the folder and choose Properties.  Under Security, you can decide who can and cannot remove the folder (or even see the folder if you wish, to hide from others).

    Just be careful.  I recommend not using the "deny".  Just do not give someone the function "allow."  Denials have priority and I saw where people wrongly denied their own access to the folder, and according to the options chosen, you can't "undo" who am wrong.

  • can I share all my photos with Lightroom high resolution with other people who have creative cloud? If yes how can I do this?

    Can I share all my photos in high resolution in Lightroom with other people who have creative cloud? If yes how can I do this? Is there a maximum amount of space that I can use? Others can add photos to the same place?

    Hi alexn,.

    If your subscription includes Mobile with Lightroom, you can create collections to synchronize the images needed and to make this collection public so that others can see these images although will not images high resolution.

    Intelligent previews of these images will be synchronized.

    Check this link for the tutorial:

    Collections «Julieanne Kost's Blog»

    You can also check out the tutorial to get started with Lightroom Mobile first:

    Get started with Lightroom for mobile

    How to start using Lightroom on mobile | Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC tutorials

    Although others may not add their photos in your collections.

    And this can be done if you have the creative cloud subscription which includes Mobile with Lightroom.

    Kind regards
