Skype Desktop keeps closing


For the love of Skype!

Does anyone know how I can stop Skype desktop from mysteriously closing all by itself?  If I walk away from my desk for a few minutes I come back to discover Skype has closed, ugh.

    I'm also having the same problem and have heard from others that the same is happening to them.

    I've now switched to the Skype Preview app as I couldn't put up with Skype closing.

    I have a feeling the Skype Preview app is also having the same problem, but that may be just me closing it by mistake.

    If the Skype UWP is opening, that will force the desktop app to close.

      The problem is with Skyp UWP, which I like but is missing a key feature for me - the ability to paste an image from clipboard.  Until they add that I am stuck on the desktop version.  Unintalling Skyp UWP does the trick for anyone else having the issue.
