How do I completely shut down Skype?

When ever I close Skype by using the X in the upper righthand corner it continues to give me notifications.  How do I completely shut down Skype?  I tried using the task manager, but it is not listed.  I would need to restart it later so that I can use it.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Right click on Skype and select Exit Skype. As you noticed, closing Skype just minimizes it.

For that version of Skype, choose Sign Out and it goes away. I just tested it. My earlier post was for Skype Desktop.

And so, yes to your later commet.
