A shortcut to edit the last-sent Skype message Apps
Here's a really quick way to open an edit window on your last-sent Skype message -- simply press the Up Arrow key, and a text area with the last message pops up.

I'm using the 2.8 beta version of Skype for Mac OS X, but this hint doesn't work on OS X. I know, that this is working on Skype 4.0 on Windows, but it seems like the OS X version is missing this feature.
