    On the home screen, we need to find the 'Skype' tile. It has a blue background, and in the middle is the Skype logo, which is a white circle with a blue letter "S" inside. If the Skype application hasn't been pinned to the home screen, swipe to the left and locate it in the 'Apps' menu. Once you've located the Skype tile, press down on it, and this will take us into the application.

    Once in the application, we need to go to the 'settings' menu. To find that, we need to press the ellipses icon, which is located at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. Some options will appear.

    We want the second option from the bottom, 'settings', which appears in white text. Press it to enter the 'settings' menu. What we want to do in this video is show you how to turn on or off the option to always prompt before calling external links.

    To turn this option off, swipe the icon from right to left. We can see it's turned on. It says the word 'On' and it has a blue bar. If it's full with blue, it means it's on, and if it's not, then it means it's turned off. We may want to be asked before calling external links if we press a button by mistake. It's not going to automatically allow us to connect or to call an external link. This will save us money, and will hopefully save us some problems as well. If we have this turned off and we press a button by mistake, it's possible that we will call an expensive number, or it will take us somewhere that we don't want to go. By turning this option on, we will always be asked if you want to call an external link.

    It will say the word 'Off' and the bar has been filled with gray.

    If we want to turn it back on, press down on the box and swipe from left to right until the box is full of blue once more, and it says 'On'. Use the option that works better for you.
