    Hi,

    To help us determine the troubleshooting steps to resolve your Skype startup concern, we'd like to ask the following:

    • What is the make and model of the device that you're using to log in?
    • Are you trying to log in on Skype or on Skype preview?
    • Which Skype application is running on your initial startup?

    We're looking forward to your response. Tagged as pending on customer.

  3. Completely disable skype on startup?

    This is factually incorrect for current Skype. This option is unavailable. There appears to be no way to disable Skype from automatically running in the current version of WIndows 10,

    I guess Microsoft knows better that we do what is good for us.

    Completely disable skype on startup?

    If a Skype application is visible on background process under Task Manager, it's possible that one of your application is automatically signed in upon start up. To prevent this from happening, follow these steps:

    To disable start up on Skype

    • Open Skype application.
    • Select Tools.
    • Click on Options.
    • Select General settings.
    • Uncheck the Start Skype when I start Windows option.

    To log out of Skype preview

    • Open Skype preview.
    • Click your profile picture.
    • Select sign out.

    Note: You'll need to log back in if you wish to use either of the application.

    Let us know if you need further assistance regarding your Skype application.
