Summary: Skype is software supports one-on-one and group conversations, which enables the world’s conversations. Users can interact and work wherever they are. However, many people are tired of it, keeping running in the background. So this post shows you how to close Skype when you click the close button.

Why do Some Users want To Close Skype?

Users may keep the Skype app open throughout the day while chatting or on audio or video calls. If they open a bunch of programs simultaneously, the taskbar space can be at a premium.

Another annoyance for users is that when they right-click the Skype and select Close, it doesn’t remove the taskbar’s Skype icon. So they need to close the Skype icon.

The close button in the program title bar should close the program when users click it. Except for Microsoft’s own Skype, almost all programs follow this default behavior.

When clicking the Close button in the Skype window, Windows OS does not close the Skype window but minimizes it to the taskbar’s system tray. If you want to close the Skype window, you should close Skype from the system tray. Many people find this strange.

Force Skype To Close When Clicking Close Button

There is a configuration in the Skype settings to change the default behaviour. Here’s the easy way to force Skype to close its window when clicking the close button.

Step 1: Open the Skype app. Click on the three dots and then select the Settings option.

Step 2: Select the General tab in the left pane.

Step 3: Turn off the “On close, keep Skype running” option in the STARTUP AND CLOSE section.

That is all! After that, every time you click the close button, Windows OS will terminate the Skype app instead of minimizing it to the system tray. You can click the minimize button to minimize Skype.

Note: Skype loads with Windows 10 by default. If you don’t want Skype to load automatically or start with Windows 10, please follow the below steps.
