How to turn off the "Meet Now" feature in Windows 10

Earlier this year, Microsoft added Skype "Meet Now" to Windows 10 previews, and the same feature is now being released to non-Insiders.

Windows 10 Meet Now

When Meet Now is added to Windows 10, a small one will appear button with a camcorder icon in the system tray that will launch Skype Meet Now - when you click button.

This icon allows Microsoft to integrate the Meet Now video conferencing platform directly into Windows 10 to compete with Zoom and others platforms.

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

As mentioned at the beginning, Meet Now is enabled by default, but you can right-click on icon and select "hide" to turn it off.

If you still can not hide the Meet Now button from taskbar, follow these steps:

  1. Open Settings,
  2. Click Personalization.
  3. Click the Taskbar.
  4. Click on "Turn system icons on or off".
  5. 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.
