Next, go back to your version of Skype. Look in the left hand corner. You should see an icon for a dial pad. Click on this icon. A dial pad that looks similar to the ones used in actual telephones will appear. One the top of this pad, there will be a drop-down menu that will allow you to choose the country you wish to call.
