    Interesting, I can't find any references to Skype Classic when using my mobile. Always tries to give me Skype v8.18.0.6.

    I have to try using a Windows 10 computer...

    THANK YOU !! Now I wonder if the drop down menu has been there all this time Good to see the old interface again. Only issue now is when classic Skype starts, I get spinning dots in the conversation pane which I can get rid of by clicking any contact or my profile.

    They discontinued the Skype translator on the classic version and wonder what else they might cut out to push more people to the new version

    Hi all, I was trying to install the 8.19 v ersion, but the installer stated that I should use the version from store and redirected me to store. I already have the store version installed. Every time I am connecting to conference call, I get stuck in strange modal state of Skype that offers me some new features (black text on gray background), and there is no way to exit the modal state. I clicked on every point in Skype window, for no avail. No menu available, nothin available in this state. When I close the Skype window (top right cross), I can still hear the conference sound, so there is not even a way to close Skype without rebooting the computer. Who is responsible for this crap?

    You need to run the installer in compatibility mode for windows 7.
