    thanx mate but that help if the earlier versions of skype. the latest version doesn't have those options
    If you prefer the old Desktop Skype, I put an installer link in post 10. Will give you this legacy look:

    Maybe you gotta sync all that stuff first...

    I agree with 'Edwin', this link doesn't work. I have used this a few times when my Classic Skype says there's a newer version. You download version 8 and when you try to install, just tells you to go to the Store which downloads the v12 app that a lot don't like. I can't remember if I had to run compatibility but I don't think I did. The Classic Skype msi installer is in post 10. Cheers.

    Selecting Desktop, the button takes you to Store for UWP Skype app instead.

    Still gives me the aforementioned SkypeSetupFull.exe v7.40.0.104,

    not the Enhanced version 8.13.0.3, (now 8.15.0.4)
