Skype took over my system and changed phone numbers on Webpages to make them unable to be copied

Hello,

 

I am new to skype, and recently installed the latest version and it did something to my computer system that I do not like.  It made the phone numbers displayed on Websites displayed as a click to call link.  Unfortunately this is unacceptable.  I need to copy and paste the phone numbers from Websites into other documents.  This 'feature' makes this impossible.  I have tried turning off this feature in the Skype options, but phone numbers on other Websites still display as clickable links that cannot be copied.

 

Can you please tell me how to fix this without having to completely uninstalling skype and being unable to use it?  Thank you for your kind consideration of my request for help.

 

Best regards,
