    Skype


    Skype showed up in my Outlook.com account in Firefox and I have no use for it. Is there a way to get rid of it??

    Just a thought.. check the "Programs and Features" and see if you can uninstall it from there.

    Thanks Jeff but I tried that. It is in Windows 7 as well. I did find a Style hack that removes the right side of the pane . I guess I will just have to ignore it but I will look in add/remove programs in Windows 10.

    It is not there

    Have you tried running malware bytes?? That might fix the problem.

    MBAM did not work either. I went into outlook.com options and there is an option for your skype profile so I went in there but there is nothing in it to remove it. I loggoed ou but Skype cam right back. I will keep on looking and if I find a way I will post it. I sent MS a feedback about it through outlook and if they reply I will post that as well.

    I can hide it using a Firefox Extension so that is good enough for me.
