Unable to find Skype after installing (Ubuntu)


So, I've installed Skype. I downloaded the .deb files from the website and opened them with the Ubuntu Software Center to install the program. After it said that it installed it, I went to search my PC for it in the dash, but I was not able to find it.

I've also tried typing "sudo apt install skype". It returned with a message telling me that Skype is in its newest version. So, I'm assuming that I already have it but not able to find it?
