Windows 8 and 8.1 Forums


  1. #1


    Well I've been using both messenger and Skype on my laptop. I haven't updated messenger on my laptop for a long while now. Today I start up my laptop and I see messenger wants to automatically start. So I figure I'll wait till its done starting up and change that in the preferences, no big deal. Then I get a pop up that says there is and update to messenger, so I agree and accept. Well the update completes and low and behold, Skype starts to install and once Skype installs, messenger is nowhere to be found. So I guess this is the beginning of the end to messenger.

    Anybody else seen this or had it happen to them yet.
