Before the many updates to Skype post-Microsoft acquisition, simply disabling the promotions options in settings was enough to rid your conversations of unnecessary spam. However, a new banner ad has made its way to the conversation window. This ad wouldn’t be such a bother if it didn’t often cut into the video feed area when going full screen. There is a simple step to disable the ads.
Open Control Panel and double click on Internet Options icon. The following popup window will appear.
Under the Security tab click on Restricted sites and then Sites button.
Once clicked the Sites button you will see the following popup window.
Add https://aaps.skype.com in the Add this website to the zone: text input and click Add button.
Restart your Skype.
Hurry! No more banner ads on Skype 🙂
