    Bear in mind there are two implementations of Skype- a UWP app (from the Store) and a downloadable desktop program.

    How do you get rid of it? That depends on which of those it is.

    Is it shown in your Start Menu?

    In addition to the tutorial cited by Paul Black, I note you have Ccleaner:

    It was more likely the windows 10 app and to find that you have to use windows settings and then go to apps and then under apps/features. That's how I removed all the windows 10 apps i don't use or want.
