In the past, when Outlook.com was still Hotmail, I merged Skype with Hotmail and could communicate with my Skype contacts through the outlook.com website.

I have not used Skype for years now and I think that this whole integration with Skype makes loading a lot slower and it is something I don't want anymore.

Is there a way to remove Skype from outlook.com, or is it a standard feature?

How do I turn off Skype in Outlook.com?

Skype is fully integrated with Outlook.com and cannot be turned off. We have received customer feedback that people would like the ability to turn off Skype and we’re working on adding this feature – watch this space.
