How do you turn off Skype?

Ive tried reinstalling it many times but the problem stays!

 

I can't close Skype! Nothing happens when I click the X and I cant find "close" in any of the drop down menues.

Re: How do you turn off Skype?

When Skype is closed, it closes to the toolbar (in Windows). It is still loaded to allow you receive incoming calls and messages.

 

To turn it off, right-click the icon in the toolbar and chose "Quit Skype" (not Close).

Yes you can close it by clicking on Quit Skype but how do you actually close it so that it doesn't show up anymore
