    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"
