Re: Skype Metro App wont go to login screen!

Please answer all of the following diagnostic questions in your very next reply:

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed?

What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
What third-party firewall (if any)?

Are you logged into with your Microsoft Account to Messenger on any other devices?

try to open the page with IE-32bit and post the result
https://apps.skype.com/friendfinder/

Re: Skype Metro App wont go to login screen!

Can you browse the friendfinder page with your IE?

 

Check your Proxy Settings

In Internet Explorer, Go to, Tools >> Internet Options... >> Connections>> Lan settings , Use a proxy server... if it had been ticked, then... Remove that check. Make sure automatically detect settings is enabled. (Marked)

Re: Skype Metro App wont go to login screen!

Quit modern Skype.

 

Try disabling the Windows Defender service.

 

Press Win + R

Type services.msc /s

Look for Windows Defender service and Double click on it and in the Startup type box select Disabled. Click Apply and OK.
