Earlier this year, Microsoft added Skype "Meet Now" to Windows 10 previews, and the same feature is now being released to non-Insiders.
As shown above screenshot, if you click on the icon, a flyout will appear with two options - "Create a meeting" or "Join a meeting".
Both options will automatically start the Skype application and launch video conference. If the Skype application is not installed, Windows 10 will launch Skype Web on Microsoft Edge, where you must create or attend a Skype meeting.
How to turn off the "Meet now" icon of Skype in Windows 10
If you still can not hide the Meet Now button from taskbar, follow these steps:
- Open Settings,
- Click Personalization.
- Click the Taskbar.
- Click on "Turn system icons on or off".
- Scroll down and deactivate the "Meet now" option.
If you want to reset the changes, just go back to the same Settings page and turn on the feature.
