    Automatic updates are the easiest way to keep Skype for Windows 10 up-to-date. They’re turned on by default, but if you need to disable them:

    1. On the Start screen, select Store to open the Microsoft Store.
    2. Select the More More menu button, and then select Settings. 
    3. Under App updates, turn the toggle for Update apps automatically to Off.

      Note: This will turn off automatic updating for all apps from the Microsoft Store. You can turn the automatic updates back on whenever you'd like.  If you would like to manually update Skype, please go to the Micorsoft Store for app updates.
