Q: Installing skype on windows 10 as a normal desktop application

Hello,

Anyone knows how install Skype as a normal desktop application and not as a metro windows 10 "app" ?

I just reinstalled windows 10 and downloaded Skype. When I tried to install it, windows didn't let me install and

show me a message that I have to install it from windows store.

Honestly, I don't like this version and I can even have a normal Skype shortcut pinned to the task bar.

Thanks
