How to set Skype presence status to always active / online ?

Is it possible to don't show the away status on regular Skype and show always the active one ? I mean my presence status should be always active, even when I am inactive, not typing on keyboard, not using mouse etc.

On regular Skype for PC, it is not possible to set presence status to always active. Available statuses may be different, depending on Skype version. On default settings, you have these statuses:

  • Active (green dot) - set when user is active, for example moving mouse cursor, typing on keyboard etc.
  • Recently active or Inactive (green dot with white dot in the middle) - set when not active for a few minutes. Status is often set after 3 minutes of inactivity.
  • Last seen (yellow dot) - set when inactive for a longer time. Usually you can see an approximate time of inactivity, for example: Last seen 1 hour ago or Last seen 2 days ago.
  • Away (yellow dot) - set when inactive for an hour or more. It is possible to set away status anytime you want.








Please note that presence statuses in regular Skype don't work exactly in the same way as in case of Skype for Business.
