How can I remove Skype for Mac OS X from the Dock?


This FAQ is for Skype 5.0 for Mac and above. For Skype 5.0 for Windows and above, refer to these instructions.

By default, Skype appears in the Dock when it is running.

If you close the Skype window, it still appears in the Dock. To remove Skype from the Dock:

  1. Right-click the Skype icon in the Dock and select Options. Make sure that the Keep in Dock option is unchecked.

  1. Right-click the Skype icon again and select Quit.

This completely closes Skype and signs you out. You will no longer receive instant messages or calls through Skype.
