How to exit Skype?

Hi,

 

Skype stays in my taskbar even when I sign out, even when I right-click on the item and select close window. How do I exit skype altogether, without having to restart my computer or kill the application in task manager?

Re: How to exit Skype?

Hi,

 

If you don't want that Skype will run in the background and completely sign out, then from the main menu (located in the top of your Skype window) choose Skype --> Sign Out

 

This will sign you out from Skype.

Dear,

 

You can right-click on the Skype icon on the notification area on the Windows taskbar and select Quit to exit Skype.

Re: How to exit Skype?

This doesn't seem to work for me - I am using Windows 7 and there is no "quit" option when I right-click. Any other solutions?

Re: How to exit Skype?

Why doesn't skype offer a option to completely exit the program if you close the window?
