You don't want to be bothered on Skype or want to let your contacts know you're away without signing out? Use the status tool!



You can also go invisible to stay connected without appearing online.

How to change your connection status on Skype?

1. To change your status, just click on your profile picture at the top left. If you manage to click on the very small colored circle, a menu will appear with the choices "Active" (green), "Away" (yellow), "Do not disturb" (red and prevent notifications ) and “Invisible” (gray).

If you clicked on your photo, go to step 2.


2. A menu then appears, where all you have to do is click on your current status to display the same menu mentioned in the previous step.
