YSK how to Block Skype Ads

I rarely use Skype, and by “rarely”, I mean “never”. But a lot of people do, and when I was looking something about some ads, I instantly saw them:


There are two kind of ads; the first one are promotions and “help improving” ads, the second are the ones like the one above. Here’s how to block/disable both.

For the first one Tools > Options > Notifications > Alerts & Messages. Disable both options.


The second type of ads, these are the intrusive one. Go to the popular folder


Open the “hosts” file with the notepad and add the following lines: * * *

Save the file... you need to have admin privileges, FYI.

Restart your Skype. Now ads should no longer be an issue for you.
