Can't un-pin Skype icon from taskbar
« on: March 21, 2015, 11:50:27 AM »
The most recent Windows update ('installing 18 of 39 updates .. do not turn off your computer' - you know the sort of thing!) left me with a Skype icon in the taskbar.

So far I haven't ventured into the world of Skype and I'm sure that if and when I do I'll be able to launch it from other quarters.  In the meantime I don't really want to see the icon in the taskbar.

Usually, to un-pin an item from the taskbar, I merely right click it and select Unpin this program from taskbar and it's gone.  With the Skype icon, not only is it all lit up as if I was hovering my mouse over it (I'm not) but right clicking it fails to reveal the usual un-pin option.

Anyone know how I can remove it, please?
