So let's download Skype and get started. So first you type in Skype.com, click enter and it should take you right to the website. Now, it's a little tricky at first, but just click the arrow tab to the right, then click "Get Skype" - after you click that button, they'll give you an option of getting Skype for free or Skype Premium. Skype Premium just allows you to call different countries and get it for a cheaper rate, but I'd get Skype free, and voila. The next step that happens is that you have to create an account. Your email address, whichever one you choose. You have to repeat it again, of course. Then you'll scroll down and you have to put in your profile information - your birthdate, gender, country you're from and so on. Whichever city you're from is not important. Language, English. Your mobile number if you'd like to make Skype calls, but you don't have to put that in if you're just gonna get the free version. How do you intend to use Skype? Personal conversations. And now you get to choose your cool Skype username. Something that's so cool that everyone knows, man I just can't wait to video chat with this guy. Our cool name is "Howcastdemo". Password - choose something that people won't be able to log into your account. Alright, so now you just fill in the Captcha image just to prove that you're a real human being and not a robot. Then you agree, and continue. Alright, and now you're all set. So in order to download Skype now, you have to just click save file and it should be opening up in your download box. As soon as it's finished, it should be able to pop up in your download box and you can click Skype. So you double-click, you click "Open" and then you click "Sign-in." That wonderful sound means you are now a Skyper. So you can go through the tutorial, what's new, making calls and setup, but that's what I'm here for, so we'll leave tour. And that's how you install and get started with Skype.
