    Microsoft's new Skype Preview app for desktops only works on older versions of Windows, but there's a way to get it running on the latest version of Windows 10. Here's how.
    Microsoft has just released a brand new Skype Preview app for Windows desktop users that introduces a brand new user interface and several new features, some of which have been in testing in the Windows 10 app for some time. Oddly, the new desktop preview app is only available for Windows 7, Windows 8 and legacy versions of Windows 10, but there's a way of installing it on the latest version of Windows 10 too.
    If you're on the Anniversary Update or Creators Update, trying to install the new preview app will result in the installer telling you to use the Skype UWP app instead. As we all know, the UWP version of the app is rubbish in comparison, and the new Skype Preview for desktop app is an all round better app. So, here's how to bypass that block and get the new app installed on the latest versions of Windows 10.
