Windows 8

Hi everybody,

I am here asking for help...

I just got a new laptop ( Samsung) that comes with Windows 8.

I tried to install Skype on it but it keeps asking me for a MS acoount.

I uninstall Skype from the Store and tried to install it from Skpe website. But same result.

I wants me to sign in with my MS account. Which do not have and I do not want to create.

PLUS I hate mixing and merging accounts.

Any ideas how I can have my Skype in the old fashioned way?

 

Thank you in advance.
