Skype Classic is officially no longer supported by Microsoft
Microsoft officially stopped supporting Skype Classic. All users Skype version 7.4 was invited to go to Skype 8, or exit the system, since the “classic” build is no longer supported. In this case, there were no other options, except perhaps the opportunity to learn more.
