I know that one can mute all notification with going Do Not Disturb, but to be honest I don't like that status because it has a big red STOP sign on it, which reads DO NOT DISTURB, and this can come accross as very discouraging to whoever wants to write me a message or call me.
I DO want people to disturb me and write messages to me! It's only that I will get back to them later, and I don't want the Skype application to disturb me. I do not want to tell my contacts to not disturb me! On the contrary, I do want them to write me and call me. I only want to tell the Skype application to not disturb me.
So because the Do Not Disturb status has such a negative connotation in my opinion, and it gives out the wrong message to my contacts, I end up having my status on Away or use a 3rd party messager like Trillian, which automatically silences Skype on the Away status. However, if I use Skype alone, Away does not silence notifications.
So is it possible to mute Skpye all together without using the Do Not Disturb status?
Solved! Go to Solution.
yes, it is possible.
Just click Tools >> Options >> General >> Sounds. Then click the the Mute All Sounds button. This will disable all ringtones and event Sounds.
Then if you want to disable notifications, go to Tools >> Options >> Notifications >> Notification Settings. Just uncheck any notification that you want to disable.
