      Hi Saima,
      You can search for and download Skype by typing Skype for Desktop into your preferred search engine . Note that there are three Skype versions, but the one you want is Skype for Desktop.
      As for disabling updates, I recommend contacting Tech Support for assistance with that.
      Also, have you checked out our training on Skype? If you’re a JAWS or Fusion user, you may find it useful. You can stream or download it at this link:
