I am writing my CV using the moderncv package. I tried to add a Skype call link by using the command


However, when I try to open this link, it opens the following directory path: file:///C:/Users/.../Documents/cv/moderncv/examples/skype:username?call

I tried to add an email command into my CV, \href{skype:username?call}{skype}, and it works fine.

Also, if I type skype:username?call into the browser, it opens my Skype, so I do not understand what the problem is.

Edit: It seems that this problem is only present with Chrome and Adobe Reader. Is there any way how to fix it for these two browsers?

I tried \href{skype:*username*?call}{skype} and it works well!
