Skype for Windows

Went live another version of Skype for Windows (by the way, the third one this month). The only thing that I was able to notice in Skype for Windows is new design of some interface elements and pop-ups (for example, to see the new changes, open the language editor: Skype → Tools → Change Language → Edit Language File).

It is important to note that this version is intended only for Windows XP and Windows Vista. Apparently the analogue version of for Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 is version

      It seems the latest version of Skype for Windows XP and Vista can be downloaded only if browser is running under one of these operating systems. Thus, using Windows 10 you cannot download it using specified URLs, but you can download it directly via or download it from this blog.

    Hi, I had been using older version of skype because that the only version that worked on my old vista laptop. I've been trying to install the newer version but it keeps giving me the blank login page. I tried the /legacylogin thing but it won't work. Is there anything that I could do to make the newer skype work again in my laptop? Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

      Hi! The parameter /legacylogin is not supported for a long time. To fix your issue, please read these articles: Blank white screen in Skype for Windows and JavaScript required to sign in to Skype.
