Changing your Skype Ringtone v2


Customise your Skype ringtone for Skype version 2

Changing the default Skype ringtone is easy and VoIPFAQ.net will show you how.

First of all go to our Skype Ringtone section and download a ringtone of your choice to an area on your computer (such as C:\ringtones)

All of our ringtones have been specially created and selected to work with Skype

Step by step

Now go to your Skype application (having the latest version is always a good idea) and follow these steps

Step 1. Select Tools > Options
 
   

   
       
Step 2. Highlight Sounds in the left hand column and then click on the 'Import Sounds' button
 
   
   
      
     
Step 3. Select your favourite VoIPFAQ.net ringtone that you saved earlier and click the Open button.

You'll be taken back to the screen shown in Step 2 The ringtone is now in the 'My Sound Library',  You can test the ringtone by double clicking the listed item.

   
     
Step 4. Select the ringtone you just uploaded from the dropdown list by clicking it and then click on the 'Save' button. This is now you incoming ringtone.

   
     
Step 5. By default the 'Ring PC speaker' option is set. To just hear your ringtone when someone calls you must untick this box (as shown) and click Save. This option can be found under 'Sound Devices'
 
   
   
 

That's it, jobs a good'n, you now have your own customised ringtone for Skype. Just repeat the above steps whenever you fancy a ringtone change.
