Nevertheless, unofficially, we can use Skype for Web on these operating systems, and I will teach you how to do it, but first of all I want to warn you:


  • Using old software significantly reduces the security of your computer. Therefore, I strongly recommend upgrading the OS as soon as possible.
  • To use Skype, you need to outsmart the official site, so that it “thinks” that you are using a modern browser and OS.
  • This is not an official way, which means that no one can guarantee neither proper work nor long-term support. That is, tomorrow it may stop working.

And so, to use Skype for the Web on Windows XP or Windows Vista, you need:
  1. Download and install Chrome 49.0.2623.112 (it is an outdated version, but it is the latest version supported for Windows XP and Vista).
  2. Download or create a new shortcut on desktop by pointing to the following path:
    '%ProgramFiles%GoogleChromeApplicationchrome.exe' -user-agent='Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/73.0.3683.103 Safari/537.36'
  3. Be sure to close Chrome, double-click the new shortcut, and enjoy Skype.

  • If you still get the “Browser Not Supported” error message, be sure to close Chrome before launching the new shortcut. If this does not help, run the CreateWebSkypeLNK.vbs script that will automatically create the necessary shortcut on your desktop.
  • Change the icon of the shortcut: download icon, right click on the shortcut, choose “Properties”, press “Change icon”, and specify path to the downloaded icon.
  • Hide the warning about the outdated version of Chrome by adding an --disable-infobars to the shortcut path.
  • Instead of a shortcut, you can install an extension for Chrome, that allows you to fake User Agent string. This can be more convenient because it allows you to replace the string only for certain domains.
  • Instead of Chrome, you can use Firefox 52.9.0 by adding Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/73.0.3683.103 Safari/537.36 for general.useragent.override in about:config. But, according to my tests, it loads the processor at 100% and the OS becomes unusable.
