Hello

I appear to have 2 versions of Skype installed on my Windows 7 64bit PC. They are:

Skype Version 8.56
Skype 7.24

Do I need both or can I safely uninstall one of them, please?

Thank you,

Ian.

You don't need both versions. According to their web site versions older than 8 will no longer work.

Are you wanting to retain conversations in the older version? If so I'm not sure how to do that. But if not you can uninstall 7.24 via the Control Panel - Programs (uninstall a program). Make sure it's not running in the taskbar first. If you see the icon there right click on it and select "Quit" to close the program before attempting to uinstall it.
