    Messenger and Skype contacts x2


    Hi,

    I just bought a computer with Windows 8 and I have a little problem.

    Skype and Messenger are together now. It's ok.
    But my Messenger contacts are on Skype AND on the app Messages
    And when one of them send me a message I receive it on both Skype and Messages apps.

    How can I change this ? Can I juste disable Messages app ?

    Thanks.

    PS : I'm french, sorry for the mistakes and I hope my Win8 apps are the sames as you :/

    You can either disable notifications from messenger in the PC Settings, or simply uninstall the messenger app, since you have all contacts on skype.
