I am missing the Skype tile.

I installed first the Metro version, then unistalled it and installed the desktop one, but the tile is missing and I only have the desktop icon. When I right click the desktop icon looking for "pin to Start Menu" it is not there. I don't know why, because it is there for any other icon/program, but not for Skype.

Any clue?

Go on the start screen and search for Skype. The Skype for desktop app in the app list should come up. Right click it and then pin to start should be on the bottom of the screen.

Thanks a lot.
