    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

    Hi there,

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

      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.

    I downloaded Skype from this website but since my computer is so outdated it will open the program, and then it will load with a spinning circle around my cursor and then the program crashes. I am using Windows 7 32-bit with 2GB of Ram.

      Hello Charles! Unfortunately, Microsoft has disabled Skype 7 and users cannot use it anymore on any operating systems. To continue using Skype you should update it to Skype 8 or use Skype for Web.
