Re: getting Skype off of task bar

As I noted previously, Skype can also be closed from the Task Bar (without
worrying about System Tray icons at all). On a Windows 8 machine, the task
bar can be accessed by pressing Windows T. You can then navigate to the
Skype icon using the left or right arrow keys. When you land on Skype,
press the application key or right mouse button, and choose "quit Skype"
from the context menu. You will be presented with a dialogue box asking you
if you are sure you wish to close the program. Activate the "quit" button,
and Skype should be properly closed. I hope this helps.

It sounds as though your system tray is set to hide some icons. Below are
instructions for how to reveal them in Windows 7. I believe they originated
with David Bailes, and I added notes from my own experience when I went
through the process some years ago.

Open start menu properties with Win key, escape, alt-enter.

In the first dialog, tab to and press the Notification Area Customize
button. I found that the list of options appears when I shit-tabbed once.

The first item there is always turn on all icons. I pressed the spacebar on
it, then tabbed to Okay.

Earlier today someone posted instructions for getting Skype off of your task
bar completely.

The first instruction was to access Select A System Tray Icon and arrow down
to Skype.

I tried this. After entering Insert F11, I have only 4 choices to arrow to.
They are Get Windows 10, Solve PC Issues, Network 5 Internet Access and

So, will the instructions not work for JAWS 14?
