In February, Microsoft pulled the download link for the "classic" Skype for Windows desktop installer from its website, citing a security issue in the installer with Skype version 7.40. However, now the company has released Skype version 7.41, once again making the classic desktop app available for download from its website (via OnMSFT).
"We are happy to announce that Skype customers can now resume download and install of the official Skype for Windows desktop v7.41," Microsoft said this week on its Answers forum.
For Skype users who aren't fans of Microsoft's more modern Skype experience available via the Microsoft Store, the classic app's return is welcome news. There was some concern when the installer was pulled that it was gone for good, but that appears to be unfounded. If you count yourself among its fans, you can grab classic Skype from Microsoft now.
