Unfortunately, the download page to which the link sends us has absolutely no instructions for getting 7.41. It simply tells me that if I have Windows 10 I already have the latest version. This message from Skype/Microsoft was utterly useless.

That's really good news!

Do I have to uninstall the current Skype app from my Windows 10 pc?

How do I uninstall it?

It isn't in the Control Panel program list.

Find it in the Start Menu a to Z list, right click and look for an uninstall option.

Interestingly, Windows 10 doesn't list everything in its apps list in settings where yo can uninstall, nor in Control Panel Programs and Features.

For anything you want to uninstall, but can't find a way, get CCleaner Free - it lists everything at Tools>Uninstall.
