This article explains how to stop Skype from starting automatically in Windows 11Windows 10, and Windows 8. The steps differ slightly depending on how you installed the program—from the Microsoft Store or through Skype.com.

Windows: How to Disable Skype’s Auto-Start Setting

By default, Skype opens automatically each time your computer starts and you log in to your user account. When you disable Skype on startup, you have to manually open it the first time you want to use it after starting your computer. Once it’s open, it remains open like normal—and messages and calls can come in—until you sign out or close it down.

You can also promptly shut down the program in one step: Right-click the Skype icon from the right side of the Windows taskbar area, and choose Quit Skype to instantly shut it down.

  • Select the three-dotted menu (it’s located next to your name on the main page).
  • Choose Settings.
  • Go to General.
  • For the standard program, toggle Automatically start Skype to the off position (the button will turn grey).

For the Microsoft Store app, select Settings from that same screen, locate Skype from the list, and toggle the bottom to the Off position.
