  • Patch Lady – Skype gets a reprieve

    Posted on August 7th, 2018 at 14:56 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    You may have already seen this in the Askwoody lounge but for once Microsoft listened to customer feedback.

    I have seen many many many longtime users of Skype say that they are looking for alternatives due to all of the changes.  Just like the Windows 10 upgrades on 7, you’ve had to watch carefully in the Skype dialog boxes to not get upgraded.  So if you are a classic Skype user, watch those update/upgrade dialog boxes in the Skype interface as it just might try to trip you up.

    I can’t believe I’m pointing to this…but there is guidance on ways to block the upgrade prompts in this forum post.
