    Windows can't auto close Skype on shutdown

    When i shutdown windows Skype will not automatically close, giving me the error in the picture below. I have to manually right click on the Skype icon in the system tray and quit it, then shutdown windows again. It's a hassle.

    I've reinstalled Skype.
    I'm running latest version of windows 1511 and all upto date.
    I'm using the Skype desktop app, on a desktop pc, in desktop mode.

    Just a thought - Skype is now built into the latest version of W10 so it is possible you will not need the Skype Desktop app. By the way I could not see the image you posted.
