One of the cool features Skype provides is something called Number Highlighting.
What is Number Hightlighting? Well, once Skype has been uploaded to your computer, Skype will automatically recognize phone numbers found online (numbers must be in specific format to be recognized – Example: 999-999-9999) and change the simple text phone number into a link that allows you to simply click and call directly from the site you are on.
Now some people may find this to be a little obnoxious. So if you are one of those people, read below and find out how simple it is to disable Number Highlighting!
- Open your browser and look for the blue Skype icon in the upper right-hand corner (icon should be blue with an “S” and “123” with a green phone image)
- Click on the Skype icon.
- A window will pop up asking you if want to “Turn number highlighting on”. Uncheck the box to disable and click “OK”.
- Now open up a site that you know had clickable numbers on it and test to see if it worked!
That’s how you disable clickable buttons and phone numbers in your browser!!! We hope this was a helpful topic!
