Solution to Outlook Hanging (Not Responding) When Opening an Appointment

Outlook has been hanging on me for the last couple of days. Turns out it is related to the Skype Add-in. I disabled the add-in and it’s fine now…but I won’t be able to use Skype integration until that issue is fixed. If you want Outlook back and don’t mind going without Skype for a while then do this:

In Outlook:

1. File -> Options -> Add-ins -> Manage COM Add-ins -> Go

2. Uncheck “Skype Meeting Add-in for Microsoft Outlook 2016”

3. Click OK

4. Restart Outlook

You should now be able to open appointments.
