Other Way To Remove ADS on Skype

from the dialogue window, click Save As button then choose a folder location you want to save it to, We prefer to save it to Skype’s default install folder “C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone” or any folder you want and name it to any name you would like, e.g. NoSkypeAds.lang then Open the language file you saved using any text editor like notepad, now look for the line like in the image below;

Edit Skype Language File

Now, change English to any Text you want, in our example let’s change it to; NoSkypeAds
It is recommended to change the language to the same name of our file how you save it. We name the language file to NoSkypeAds.lang so we have to name it also NoSkypeAds in s_LANGUAGE_NAME=  … Did you get it? ;)

We are all done here, Save it and back in your Skype app, load your new defined language we edited, then enjoy skype with no ads.
