Windows 7: Skype in Taskbar fix

Here’s a quick and easy fix to the problem of Skype on Windows 7 staying in the taskbar instead of minimizing to system tray.

  1. start skype
  2. go to tools –> options –> advanced.
  3. uncheck Keep Skype in the taskbar while I’m signed in.
  4. click OK

Thanks to “Good Samaritan” for pointing this out in the comments, after I previously posted a flawed solution.

    I stumbled upon your post and decided to help out — running in compatibility mode is not recommended. bad things happen – including security issues.

    the more appropriate method is as follows:

    1. start skype

    2. go to tools –> options –> advanced.

    3. uncheck Keep Skype in the taskbar while I’m signed in.

    4. OK… done

    signed
