Like most people online I like to make use of Skype when calling family and friends abroad.
After continuously ignoring the Skype update I decided to go ahead and upgrade the software on my Macbook Pro. After the update installed, I video called my cousin in San Francisco to wish him well for the New Year. I noticed straight away that there was a ‘Skype watermark’ at the top right hand area of the screen.
The ‘Skype watermark’ has no added benefit to the end user of the program, I found it annoying where it was and so decided to remove it – “I prefer a clear screen when I’m in a video-to-video chat session.”
I have created this quick 3-step guide which shows how you can remove the watermark on your Mac and enjoy a clear screen like me.
- Step 1 – Log-in to Skype
- Step 2 – Click on Skype > Preferences (or Command + ,)
- Step 3 – Un-check “Show Skype watermark during calls” (see image below)
For PC users with Microsoft OS here is a 4-step guide on what you need to do…
- Step 1 – Open up Skype and log-in
- Step 2 – Click on ‘Tools > Options’ (a new window opens up)
- Step 3 – Click on ‘Advanced Settings’
- Step 4 – Un-check box ‘Show Skype watermark during calls‘
