Skype for Windows 7

Skype for Windows 7 is the most popular version of this program for Windows computers (this is due to the fact that Windows 7 is the most popular operating system that is installed on home computers). Except for checking checking the spelling of instant messages, Skype for Windows 7 supports all other functions and features that are available in Windows 8 and Windows 10. It's no wonder, as these systems use the same installer.

System requirements

Before downloading Skype for Windows 7 and installing the program on your computer, make sure that it meets the following system requirements:
  • Hardware:
    • Processor frequency not less than 1 GHz
    • A processor supporting the SSE2 instruction set
    • Random-access memory (RAM) not less than 512 MB
    • At least 250 MB of free disk space
    • Speakers or headphones (if you want to hear the interlocutor)
    • Microphone (if you want the interlocutor to hear you)
    • Broadband Internet connection for making high quality calls

  • Software:
    1. Although Skype works on Windows 7 without Service Pack 1, in some cases (depending on the configuration of the computer), without this update package Skype will not work properly. Therefore, take note that if necessary, you will have to install Service Pack 1 for Windows 7.

    2. If you have Windows 7 Service Pack 1 installed on your computer, you must install the Internet Explorer 11 browser (without it, in most cases there will be connection problems). In other cases, Skype for Windows 7 will work even with IE8.

    3. If you are going to download version 7.33.0.104 and higher, you must install the free redistributable package Microsoft Visual C ++ 2015 Redistributable (otherwise there will be critical errors with no system libraries).

    Paul Tulkens,
    Hi,

    As Skype version 8 has a lot of problems and is much less configurable than its version 7, I have (like many others) reverted to this old but faithful version 7. Yet, Skype insists for upgrading it-self and I have to click "Not now " each time the upgrade window opens... last time, Skype version 8 even installed it-self silently and I got two Skypes ! (I needed to uninstall the undesired version 8 and to relaunch the version 7).

    How do we prevent Skype from "upgrading" it-self, at least until Microsoft comes with a more decent and configurable version 8 ?

      Hi! Uninstall the 8 version, then open the 7 version and disable automatic updates from Skype → Tools → Options → Advanced → Automatic Updates. If this does not help, try DisableSkypeUpdater.vbs

    Hamish,
    Hi there,

    Is there a way to disable the annoying call quality feedback popup at the end of every call?

    regards,

      Administrator,
      Hello!
      Unfortunately, Skype 8 does not support the "compact view" mode.

      I recommend you to send feedback to developers and ask them to implement this feature in the new Skype. Please read here how to do it.
