Tips - Skype and Windows 10 hang up application problem

On windows 10 Skype often hangup.

A first solution that worked for me too is:

  1. Quit Skype or use Windows Task Manager to kill any Skype.exe process.
  2. Start --> %appdata% and then press Enter or click the OK button.
  3. Locate a folder named “Skype”. Rename this folder to something different, e.g. Skype.old.
  4. Start --> %temp%\skype and then press Enter.
  5. Delete the DbTemp folder.
Another procedure is this one:
  1. Exit from Skype application.
  2. Find Skype.exe in Windows Explorer (In my system it is C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe)
  3. Right Click, select Properties.
  4. Go to Compatibility tab.
  5. Select compatibility mode Windows Vista SP2.
  6. Start Skype.
  7. In menu Tools / Options / Advanced / Connection turned off the option "Enable uPnP" - this solves the issue with hanging Skype on start up in compatibility mode.
