MacOSX - Skype is crashing my System

April 2018


I've installed the latest version of Skype on my Mac and though all my softwares are up-to-date, Skype keeps on crashing my system.


You can try one of the following.
First close Skype:
  • Go to User/Library/Preferences, delete the file
  • Go to User/Library/Application Support/Skype, delete the shared.xml file
  • Delete the User/Library/Application Support/Skype folder

Launch Skype and the deleted items will be automatically created.
