How to stop skype from flashing orange on the task-bar?

[ Edited ]

This is getting very annoying as my screen set up doesn't allow for the task bar to pop up, (it is set to hide by default). When I get a message the task bar pops up and covers up important parts of my screen while I'm working.

How can I turn off these flashing orange notifications for all events?

This seems to work. No longer get a flashing taskbar if someone on Facebook sends me a message when Skype is signed into my Facebook account as well.
