Which version of Windows you are using?

Try to reset the settings of your Skype using the steps below:

Close your Skype and then hold the Windows+R. Type %appdata% and then press the Enter key. Scroll down and look for the Skype folder and then rename it to Skype_old and then restart your Skype.

Please note that changing the name of the Skype folder will transfer your IM and all you call logs to your recently renamed folder.

To recover it, please follow the steps below:

If you encounter the error Skype has stopped working try to test the solution below:

Start your Skype using the previous login screen.

Close your Skype and ensure that there is no Skype.exe running on your Task Manager. Stop any active Skype process. Navigate to C:Program Files folder. If you are running a 64-Bit PC, its on C:Program Files (x86) folder. Locate the Skype folder and Phone. Right-click on the .exe file and click Send To.

Make your Desktop as a target to create a shortcut on your Desktop. And then right-click the shortcut and click on Properties and then Shortcut tab. Under the Target area, you can see "C:Program FilesSkypePhoneSkype.exe". Add /legacy/login.

It should look like this:

For 32-bit:

C:Program FilesSkypePhoneSkype.exe" /legacylogin

For 64-bit:

C:Program Files (x86)SkypePhoneSkype.exe" /legacylogin

Click OK to save it and then run Skype by clicking on the shortcut that you saved in your desktop.
