Disable banner ads from Skype for Windows

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.

Step 1:

Open Control Panel and double click on Internet Options icon. The following popup window will appear.

Internet-Option

Under the Security tab click on Restricted sites  and then Sites button.

Step 2:

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 🙂
