One way in which you can personalise the instant messaging program Skype is by changing the background (also known as "wallpaper"). Once you've changed the wallpaper, every time you chat with someone on Skype the background of the instant messaging window will be the one you selected. You can either choose from a pre-made Skype background, or upload an image from your computer to serve as the wallpaper. You can also customise Skype by changing your profile image or instant messaging font.
