I have two Macs with Skype, a Mini and a MacBook pro
Both running the same OS, El Capitan

But on the two Macs the Skype windows look totally different.

On the Mini it shows as version 7.52 which supposedly is the latest one,
On the Macbook pro it shows 8.12.0.2 wwhich also shows as the latest one

And,,,,,,all the contacts are gone on the 8.12 version - can I recover those somewhere?

I didn't realize it had been updated??? and I'm glad the old 7.36 version I'm using still works well.

Have a read of some of the comments and you'll also find the New Skype interface has been changed:

You'll also find a URL for an older 7.x version there if you need it and it just might work better for you.
