Unhappy with Microsofts forced Skype Update on Mac?
I am still using a very old Skype version from 2009 (version 188.8.131.522), which was beautiful and simple. Just as expected. I really dislike the newer versions. So far no problem, but today Skype started forcing me to update! Skype hides and all you can do is either install the update (which i dont want), or you press Alt+Cmd+Escape and kill the process.
To stop Microsoft from forcing your Skype update, simple open a Terminal window and do:
sudo vi /etc/hosts
and add this line:
Voila! – Skype stops updating !
However, i am expecting that the old Skype version will stop working somewhen soon. If this happens, you won’t find me on Skype anymore. Sorry guys!
