Question Repair corner cracks in drywall

Does anyone know how to properly repair the cracking within the corners where drywall meets, due to the settling of an older home??? Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.

Mudding in paper drywall tape is best for corners.
Works better than the stick-on mesh tape.
Good Luck!

If the tape is blistered or comming off in any area cut it away. Then, like old guy said, re tape the corners. If you have hair line cracks you could just caulk it. Depends on how bad the cracks are.
