    Skype app does not launch after clicking on running apps

    When I launch skype on Metro mode on my HP envy tablet it works very well but if I open another app and try to launch Skype after clicking on running apps the app does not open. I have to close the app and restart to get it to work again. Anybody else having the same problem?

    Hi............

    Yeah! I have got your problem and i have solution for it.

    1.You once check Skype requirements.

    >>1 GHz Processor,
    >>Ram:256 MB,
    >>Directx v9.0 or above.

    2.If you have all these then only Skype will run.

    3.You might be having these requirements upto the need but not more than that.

    4.So the Skype will take much time to open when other apps are running.

    Have a nice day............

    Re: Skype app does not launch after clicking on running apps

    Hello !!!

    it seems that your application has conflict in between them,
    as a result when you open another application and then open skype it does not get opened. ok ??
    since, both the application might be using the same hardware, and as a result the application that start in secondary mode get halted.

    so, in order to run the application simultaneously you need to set the application to get run by using the same process.
    so,just go to skype.
    open it.
    go to settings.
    and there you will get avoid application conflict.
    just check the button there.
    and then restart your skype.
    it will work fine.

    hope i am clear to you.
    thanks for posting in EALP.

    Re: Skype app does not launch after clicking on running apps

    What you are encountering is possibly some kind of infringement with other files leading to the situation when Skype is failing in App launching
    While, other Skype connectivity is successful.

    Try the following for a fix.

    1. Click Start, in the search box type Troubleshoot, and press Enter,
    Click Troubleshooter , select Software and let the Utility fix Skype Problem.
    Exit and run Skype.
    If the App still fails to respond,
    2. Click Start,
    Type CMD in the search Box and press Enter,
    Right Click CMD,
    Select Run as Administrator,
    Type SFC / SCANNOW and press Enter.
    Let the sfc utility run, find and fix system files errors.
    You may have to run the utility three to four times for a complete fix.
    Exit and Check Skype.
    3. If the problem persists,
    Log into www.support.microsoft.com/fixit/, run the utility, let it fix system problems.
    Restart the system and check Skype issue.

    Finally , uninstall and reinstall Skype for a fix.
