Uninstall Windows 8 Metro Skype Affect Regular Skype?

March 30, 2015 at 04:14:47
Specs: W8.1
I have 8.1. I installed Skype in my typical folders of "c:\programs" (I never install in "program files" unless program is forced to do so. All associated files should be, as they are coded, in "C:\Users\main\AppData\Roaming\Skype."

My question....

Will uninstalling the Metro Skype from its (memory hogging, fake) desktop affect, in anyway, my actual Skype (including logs)?

Thank you.

I reply as fast as I can, but it could be hours or months. Always busy.

Well for starters you shouldn't really install two versions of Skype on the same PC.
Uninstall both, then install the version you prefer.

Accept the default install location as I can see no good reason for doing otherwise.

Phil, your answer was not correct for my issue. I never said I installed two versions. Windows 8 includes Metro Skype.
I eventually uninstalled Metro Skype, what Windows came with, and my regular Skype stayed unaffected.
I never marked this as "solved" as I see in my title, because I never said so, so no idea why. I fixed that.
Is solved now.
