    Default MS Skype v 7.37 for Win 10

    How are other PC form members reacting to this "upgrade". I installed the upgrade from V 7.36 (which worked fine).
    Results My prepaid Call acct with a balance of E6.38 was wiped.
    I have had several Contacts Lists - faulty . My preset up one disappeared. I tried to create a new List -did so . but then when I added a new Nr on one person it allowed me to request them to accept me for Skype and the next person I added did not allow me to send them that request..
    Skype Free calling , video etc is greyed out.
    I am also on Microsoft Community Forum and that is full of complaints from disgusted members about this new "improved" version.
    I tried reinstalling an older version but it too takes one to the New installation window.
    Last night in desperation I tried a System Restore only to find System Restore wont work -error 0x80070091 which I now know from MS Forum is an MS error from a previous Win update. The problem was advised long ago to MS but they are not addressing it. The HELP tab on Skype is full of guidance but as per usual -not properly tested.

    Comments please

    Is this the modern app version of Skype? I tried it and didn't like it so I'm sticking with the classic desktop version as long as possible

    Hi dugimodo.
    I only use(d) Skype from my Desktop.
    If I understand your post you successfully managed to revert to the prior version.
    How did you manage to accomplish that successfully?
    Tonight MS has a post on the MS Forum for Skype advising "sorry we are trying to fix Skype access for users so system is down"

    I maybe just never updated to the version you are having problems with, I was referring to the desktop version vs the windows 10 metro app style version.
    The metro one seemed less featured to me, there was no need to revert as I have both installed and just stopped using the one I don't like.

    Desktop version here https://www.skype.com/en/download-sk...s/downloading/
    The other one seems to be built into windows these days, but I don't like it so I ignore its existence.
