Re: Just installed 8.32- got questions!


I was afraid that the new version shared files with Skype 7 and that uninstalling it would cause problems. Thanks for that version identification keystroke- I was leaving out the control key. I’m actually running 8.33.

Skype version 7 will soon cease to function. Uninstall it and get used to using Skype 8.


There are two versions of Skype 8--one from the Microsoft Store, one from To find out which you have, run it, and if you're using JAWS as your screen reader, press JAWS Key plus Control plus V to hear the version number spoken.

Under control center/programs and features the old Skype 7.41 is listed- but not the new. Under ‘all apps’ there is a Skype listed with no version but with the word new after the listing. Insert Q says I’m running scripts for Skype 8. When I tried to install the version 8.31 I had downloaded, windows message said I should get the one from the Microsoft store. The store seemed totally inaccessible, so launched Skype 7 and used the built in update feature.


Without a help menu, how can I verify the version? Can I delete 7.41? Why is one version in control center and another in ‘all apps’? Thanks.
