If you have some how installed or started Skype for Business in your Windows PC/laptop, then you must be irritated by the fact that the software always popped up whenever you boot your PC.
Skype for Business is a part of Microsoft Office, you can either choose to stop it from starting every time you boot your Windows PC, or you can even uninstall it from your PC. You might not find it in the Programme Window as I have already stated, it is a part of Microsoft Office 365. To stop it from starting automatically or to completely remove it, follow this easy tutorial.
Remove Skype for Business
Open “Skype for Business” and click on the Gear icon, under the “Personal” tab look for “Automatically start the app when I log on to Windows” and uncheck it. Make sure you also uncheck the “Start the app in the foreground” option. Click OK and close the tab.
Now open Task Manager, select “Skype for Business” and click on End the process, as you can’t end the process simply by closing the Skype window.
To remove the app from your Windows PC first go to Control Panel and click on “Uninstall a program” under the Programs tab. Now look for the “skype for business”, if you can see the app in the list then right click on it and hit on uninstall. Wait for the process to complete.
After the un-installation process, now download the registry file.zip, extract it and double click on the extracted file and click on OK. You have to do nothing, just double tap and click on OK, the registry would be automatically altered in your PC.
Reboot your PC, now you’ll see the the app won’t run automatically. Hope you liked this tutorial. Drop a comment below, I’ll be in touch ASAP.
