How to mute all notifications in Skype without DO NOT DISTURB?

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?

Re: How to mute all notifications in Skype without DO NOT DISTURB?

 

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.

 

:happy:
