    Look in 'Services' see if there is a skype or skype update entry. If so, set it manual.

    I use Skype for Desktop with an icon in the taskbar. Like you, I do not want it to start on boot. I disabled it's startup like this - Open Task Manager, then Startup tab. If Skype is there, just r-click then 'disable'.

    There is nothing in the Startup tab that relates to Skype

    I assume you mean the Services tab of Task Manager. There is a SkypeUpdate which is stopped and there is no way to set manual

    I'm assuming you are using Skype for desktop which puts icon in taskbar vs Win10 Skype App from Start Menu but in the screen in post 4, after you un-check "Start Skype when I start Windows", do not restart while still signed in. R-click taskbar icon, then Quit Skype, then reboot. Good Luck

    In the Services tab of Task Manager .... Right on Click SypeUpdate / Open Services. Find SkypeUpdate / Right Click / Properties and check Startup Type. If Automatic change to Manual.

    Yes, that is how to change a run setting but Manual SkypeUpdate does not affect Program start. My SkypeUpdate is set to Automatic and Skype does not auto-start at boot hence it reads 'Stopped' under Task Manager Service tab.

    Actually, I DO get it!!! You keep telling me how to stop Skype once it has started. I want to prevent Skype from even starting. I have tried everyone's suggestions and so far, no luck.
