For those of you who are frequent users of Skype you might find those banner ads annoying. This can be a real pain if you're doing a video feed, especially if you're using it for business purposes.

I've used this method on both my laptops, one running Windows 7 and the other running Windows 10, works a treat! http://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-disable-ads-in-skype/

Yes, totally annoying. I just totally signed off and it's gone. Thanks Kathy.

Excellent, glad the solution worked for you. :)

Cool. Thank you Kathy.
That's all fine and dandy unless you are the one putting the banner ads there :-) Lol.

There are plenty of people who don't find the ads annoying I'm sure!

Need to dig my Skype out.. Thank you for the good info...! Hope you have a great day!

Thank you, and the same to you!

Thanks for the heads up Kathy!

You're welcome Dennis, I found them a real pain!

You're welcome Marty. :)

Thanks Kathy, that is GREAT!

Yes!

A BLOG THAT CURES SKYPE STRESS SYNDROME!!!

Glad you found it useful Rosie!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! If the ads didn't flash so much I wouldn't bother but they are soooo distracting. Done (on both computers). Did I say thank you? ~Marion

P.S. I only had to add the restricted site once in Internet Properties and it worked for both computers.

Excellent! I had to do the second option too, but it works fine. :)

I had to do both options - but what the heck - it worked! It was really annoying me today because I was trying to teach a WA friend (in UK) how to use Pinterest.

Thanks for the info. I have windows 10 and have started using skype

You're welcome. :)

Thank you Kathy this will be useful to many of us, have a good weekend

You too Katie. :)
