Problem signing into Skype as Internet Explorer is out of date

Trying to log in to Skype for Windows, some users were surprised to encounter the following error:
Problem signing into Skype as Internet Explorer is out of date
There was a problem signing into Skype as your version of Internet Explorer is currently out of date. Update Internet Explorer and try again later.


To solve this error, you need to update the Internet Explorer browser to the maximum version. However, depending on your operating system, Internet Explorer version differs:
  1. for Windows XP — Internet Explorer 8
  2. for Windows Vista — Internet Explorer 9
  3. for Windows 7, 8 and 10 — Internet Explorer 11

Many users do not know that the Skype depends on the Internet Explorer, and if this browser does not work properly, Skype may raise different errors. The fact is that Skype uses Internet Explorer browser functions for processing web content (e.g., to display the login form). And not accidentally the official manual specifies that, among other system requirements, be sure to install the latest version of Internet Explorer.
