Skype keeps minimizing my current window.

I use skype while playing video games with my friends. But everytime somebody hangs up or if someone else is added to a conference, skype causes my game to minimize. Is there any way to stop this?

Minimize Skype to the system tray and don't leave it on the taskbar.

Re: Skype keeps minimizing my current window.

This doesn't work.

I've found 15 threads on this and counting.

At some point, they will have to fix the most annoying feature of their program. No other chat system, phone calling system does this without the ability to change it.

Just lost a hardcore character on D3 because of this crap they haven't fixed for over a year, despite all the complaints and suggestions.

Posting this on every thread concerning this.

Uninstalled skype until they give an option to turn this off.

Happens on my mac, happens on my pc, happens on vista and 7. It is not needed and is not hard to fix.

The best part being I was invisible and someone guessed I was online and shot me a call. Awesome feature number 2. (and you can check if people are invisible if the spinning wheel never pops up. Shows they got your message

Not hard to fix. Give it to a real programmer maybe?
