    Recover Skype Video App?


    I was trying to get Skype Desktop to work on W10 v1511 and decided to uninstall the Skype Video App that comes with W10. Now I want to get it back! Short of reinstalling W10 how do I go about reinstalling the Skype Video App? I know it must be obvious but I'm at a loss. Help please.

    Thank you, I got it back. I must be real slow because I went to the Store and could not find the Skype Video App. In fact, I tried again after installing it from the link you gave me and I still can't find it?!

    Just as an aside, I finally got the Skype Desktop to install on the same machine. After some screwing around I figured out that the sign in window did not like my mouse (Logitech M510) for selecting the Sign In Name and Password. Although the mouse worked to selected other options! Once I used the keyboard to select and enter my MS Account and Password all was OK. I never ran into this issue and I have Skype Desktop installed on several other W10 systems?

    It's hard to find something specific in the store I find myself too. I actually had to search with Bing at Microsofts site for that link
    I use the Logitech M325 surfing mouse and never had problem with the desktop Skype sign in. Probably just a fluke or hiccup.

    To find apps that you have uninstalled you could also open store, click your avatar, choose "My library" and see if the one you uninstalled is listed and reinstall from there.

    Probably, but I tried it several times on different days etc. and got the same result. Seems there are a lot of hiccups that MS has to work out of W10. But...I still like it.
