Before you get started...

You may already have Skype for Business installed on your Windows computer. Do a quick check to see—following the instructions for your operating system.

Windows 7: Click Start, then Microsoft Office 2013 or Microsoft Office 2016. Then click All Programs and look for Skype for Business 2016.

Windows 10 or Windows 8: Click Start, then type “Skype for Business 2016”.

If you found it, you’re ready to go. If not, you'll need to Install Skype for Business. This link also tells you how to install Skype for Business on other platforms and on your mobile devices.

Now, log into Skype for Business

  • Enter your Office 365 user ID and password, then click Sign in. (Click the Save my password checkbox if you want Skype for Business to save your password so you don't have to enter it next time--unless you change it.)

    If you don't know your user ID or password, contact your organization's technical support.

In the next module, we'll take a tour.
