This is a Linux instal not a MS Windows. There are no options listed
in the Linux version other than Advanced.  Advanced has the choices

 'Enable Skype WiFi' (off)


 Use port (0) for incoming connections
 Drop Down Proxy Settings (Automatic Proxy Detection)
 Host (blank)           Port      (blank)
 User (blank)           Password  (blank)

And that is it.  No additional tabs not additional choices.  I will
not have this software on any of our business computers
