Skype Versions. Win8 or Win 7 ?

  iscanut2 20:35 PM 07 Nov 12

I am trying to help a neighbour ( very non computer literate )with setting up Skype. They have a new laptop running Windows 8. The Skype version they have looks very different from my Version 6 on Win 7 and I am struggling to sort it out. It does not seem to have the various options menus to enable the setting up of a new contact and I am not getting very far. Would it be OK for me to install Ver6 ( Win 7 ) version and run this. Would it clash with the Win 8 version ? My first look at Win 8 am not impressed with ease of use.
