what I suspect will happen is the client will simply refuse to
login and if it does, it'll be limited functionality at best.
That might mean that your contact list may not populate, which
means in a sense, you will have no contacts to sift through.
This doesn't mean you'll lose your contacts, it means that your
particular client simply is unable to access them.
Do please bare in mind that what I'm saying is a possibility and

Really people, we had big stinks like when win8 was first
released, XP had reached its end of life cycle and when win10 was
first introduced. all of you, are quite frankly making mountains
out of little more than mole hills.
This isn't the days when developers did as they pleased and
didn't or wouldn't listen to their end-users. times and practices
and attitudes have drastically changed since then.

unfortunately, your unwillingness to update Skype is going to
see you without that service when it is finally completely

your own personal attitude that determines as to how well you
adapt to and adopt new technologies.

generations to where they have everything on their phone,
even though, I treid to use the new version of Skype..

that, sadly, has been since removed when Skype 8 was
released, so that is no longer an option.

re sending files a possible work around,
I have found that sending files in Skype from within the
Skype menus has always been kinda hit or miss for me so
for the last 3 years or so I browse to the file on my
laptop I wish to send and right click on it,
one of the options that comes up is send to Skype.
hit enter on that and you go directly to Skype and into
your master contact list where you just find the person or
persons you wish to send the file to and click on their
I know this is probably not as sophisticated as some other
users skills might be but this has been working for me.
I hope this helps someone,

I can confirm that
since skype 8's initial release, the file send dialog is
at least in windows anyway. something I intend to lodge
feedback about. Furthermore, I am certain that MS will
at the very least take it under advisement and hopefully
will see that this is rectified in later versions of
