Skype - Disable notification when a contact comes online

Ask a question


You may have noticed that each time one of your contacts comes online, there's a small notification popping out of the system tray. This can be quite annoying, as this can cause some programs to exit full screen mode.

To disable this feature:
  • Click Tools > Options > General > Notification > Notification settings.
  • Just below " Display a notification in the Windows tray when someone ...." Uncheck the box next to "comes online"
  • Validate with the Save button.
