    Yes. That is the best choice.
    thanks guys, I uninstalled the skype app that Microsoft just quietly bestowed upon us.
    I don't even have a mic or webcam on this desktop.

    Not sure what you mean.
    Skype requires user to sign in first.
    And therein lies the problem. I use my Admin account to install programs (including Skype) and I use my regular account to use these programs. I don't want to sign in into Skype under Admin. Consequently, I have no access to full Skype options and can't disable automatic startup that way.

    I just use Auto runs to delete Skype startup entry in Admin profile.

    Yes I can.

    Open an administrator powershell window any put this in.

    Code:
    $app="Microsoft.SkypeApp"
    Get-AppXProvisionedPackage -Online |
    where DisplayName -EQ $app |
    Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online
    The normal Skype is better then the new "app" version.

    Not the same (if you look at the tutorial). If you uninstall the app from start menu it in-installs it for your user only.

    If you use the Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage it removes it for all users (including new ones) and deletes the package from "C:Program Files\WindowsApps"

    Ah ok... at this point i do immediatelly... i only need to know how i can open an "administrator powershell"...

    *EDIT*
    I need to put line-by-line or i can copy and paste all line directly ?

    *EDIT 2*
    This is what's i obtain.... i have paste all line directly:
    Code:
    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> $app="Microsoft.SkypeApp"
    Get-AppXProvisionedPackage -Online |
    where DisplayName -EQ $app |
    Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online
    
    
    Path          : 
    Online        : True
    RestartNeeded : False
    
    
    
    
    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32>
    You thinks it's ok ? Now i can close the powershell i thinks........
