Re: New Skype Installation a Complete Disaster!


JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

Isn't there even a portable version of skype? I used it for a while in 2016,
when, believe it or not, I still used an XP machine. It was very fast and
stable compared to ... basically any other skype I ever used, including on
Windows 10 at work.

I think the question has to be, does the old version of Skype, the one used
by windows 7, install OK on 10, and if it does why do we need the new one?

Hi,
The universal Skype app is the Windows 10 version of Skype.
Cheers,
Joseph

Tabbing three or four times, is not that bad, along with some key
commands. I can find what I want quicker than I can with the desktop
program. NVDA really works well with the Skype app. That is awesome.
Have a great one, guys!

Hi,
Skype universal app does have shortcut keys, such as Alt+1 to go to
conversations, Alt+2 for contacts, Alt+3 for bots and so on).
Cheers,
Joseph

That's such a slugish and obnoxious way to navigate a programme,
really. Come on Microsoft.

In the new Windows app thing? Sure. In fact I think it's the only way
to use it really.

Can you still tab around Skype like normal, though? I'm curious,
because I've never really used keyboard shortcuts. Just menus and
tabbing between options.

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

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.
Â
Â
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.

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 program?
