have several small cracks in the corners, have openened them up and
planning
to fill with all purpose joint compound and smooth... I don't know if
this
is the best way...will the cracks come back?

You need to tape them. Some people waste their money on fiberglass or paper
tape. Simply coat with compound, imbed regular household toilet paper into
the compound, recoat. Done! It's a real money saver.



I use the fiberglass myself. Not costly and cracks don't redevelop.
