So, how does Overwolf work?
Launch Overwolf and start your game. Once you are in game, simply move the mouse cursor above Overwolf widgets to control them. If no cursor is available, for example when playing a First Person Shooter, hit Shift+F1 to control Overwolf, and Shift+F2 to show/hide Overwolf. You can configure your own personal hotkeys in the settings window.

You don't need to! Every friend you have on your Skype buddy list will be automatically displayed in Overwolf. If you want to add a new friend, simply add a friend via Skype.
How do I report errors?
Click on the tool wrench icon in order to open the settings window. On the "General" tab, click on the "Found a bug? please let us know" link.
