How do I turn off Skype in Outlook.com?

Skype is fully integrated with Outlook.com and cannot be turned off. We have received customer feedback that people would like the ability to turn off Skype and we’re working on adding this feature – watch this space.

In the meantime, there are settings that let you mute notifications (sounds and toasts).

  1. Select the Skype icon in Outlook.com, then select Settings (the gear icon).
  2. Select Notifications. Here you can disable notifications and sounds.
