Re: New Skype Installation a Complete Disaster!

You can also hit windows-x. Applications and features is the first
thing. Pick that. Tab to the list, get to skype, not skype classic but
the other one, hit enter to expand, and tab to uninstall.

Awesome. It's gone. Thanks. I'll go install the classic version here
in a bit.

OK, I didn't think it worked that way for universal apps.

I'll give it a try.

The same way you uninstall any program:

Press your Windows key and type remove

Arrow down to "Add and Remove Programs and press Enter

Arrow down to Skype in the list of programs

Press your applications key and arrow down to remove and press Enter

So then, I guess my next question would be how to uninstall the
universal version within Windows 10. I guess Google's to the
rescue. LOL!

Yes, installer downloaded from both links works with windows10.

Skype forces to use Universal app only in 8.x. I could install 7.x
(version downloadable from the two links sent) in Win10 without
problems some weeks ago.

Wow! Thank you for this link. Will this work with Windows 10 as
well? I'm not much a fan of the Universal app version of Skype.
Don't get me wrong. It's O... Kayyyy, but, I definitely don't
prefer it.

I don't have all the issue with Skype that a lot of people seem
to have, in fact, I personally enjoy using it, so if I can get
that Universal version uninstalled in Windows 10, and get rid of
the classic version, that would be fantastic!

Remove your current skype installation and install the skype classic
version from this link: If you do not remove the old installation, you
will get two skype versions after installation of the classic version.

I've never had it force an update on windows 7. it always asks to which I say politely no thanks.
I'm not sure how one gets the old version.
However there does seem to have been a long history with Skype mucking it up on every update they do. I hardly ever use it these days personally, but for many years the tendency to hi jack the audio settings and not put them back afterwards seemed rather draconian to me.

Subject: [nvda] New Skype Installation a Complete Disaster!

I have used NVDA successfully with Skype for many years. Suddenly,
tonight, on my Windows 7 laptop, when I entered Skype, a new version was
forcibly installed, something like Version 8.1.2, and it presented me
with an interface that I could not comprehend with NVDA. None of the
shortcut keys that I previously used would work. I received a call from
a friend right after this forced installation and could not answer it,
because the usual alt-PageUp key combo for answering a call was useless,
as were all other previous shortcut keys. What is the solution to this
problem. I totally uninstalled Skype for now. Do we give up on Skype
as NVDA users, or install a different version or perhaps some other chat
