How Do I Hide The "Current Call" Window

[ Edited ]

Every time I minimize Skype, I have this window come up and can't remove it. How do I remove it?

 

[Sorry guys. No screeenshot. I can't upload from my computer, can't paste a link from Dropbox, or Cloud--it always directs to a broken web page, even when I remove the http://]

Go under Preferences->Calls and uncheck "Show current calls when Skype is in the background" to disable it.

Now that you point it out, it seems so obvious, ha, but I'm not familiar with Skype and had a huge problem navigating through the software. Thanks!

When you mouse over the current call video window, it shows you a small icon towards the bottom. Clicking on it will expand/collapse the video window.

Hi, I have the same problem with skype..  small window for current call can't be totally minimize, unlike in windows wherein there is a minimize icon on the left top corner of the small window. Or is it because am using the newest version of Imac? features changed? Help!

When your skype window is open, in the left corner of the screen next to the apple logo it should say "skype" Click on it and a drop down menu should appear, click on preferences to open up the window
