Domesticating Skype

Skype Version

Skype has been really irritating me by hanging around on the task bar even when its not signed in. I want it hiding in the tray like it used to.

To make matters worse, the advanced options are not accessible, so I can't use the old option of forcing it not to do the irritating behaviour.

Finally, I got motivated enough ( or passed the irritation threshold...) to do something about it.

Using the compatibility hack described on this page will force it back into pre-windows 7 behaviour. Worked like a charm.
