Skype Classic for Windows 7
Chat with your friends and Facebook contacts with Skype 8

Skype Classic is the previous release of the popular portable VoIP, instant messaging and chat tool.

Skype enables you to check what's going on with your friends, add comments and update your own status. And another click gives access to your phonebook, from where you can text or call your Facebook friends (free of charge, if they're also Skype users, potentially a real money-saver).

The program also currently includes a group video calling feature. This lets you have a video chat with more than two people, intelligently moving the focus to the person who's speaking so it's easy to follow the conversation.

If you've had problems with connection quality before then you'll appreciate the new call quality manager, which monitors performance during a call and provides help on resolving problems.

And while poor quality calls might be down to line or internet issues that you can't control, Skype now includes automatic call recovery, which quickly reconnects you when a connection has failed.

Note that this is the Classic version of Skype v7.

Verdict:

For both home and office users, Skype is an incredibly valuable tool and the latest additions are great improvements.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
