Skype Click to Call opens Skype for Business.

New Contributor

Hi there,


We have a machine running Windows 10 with Skype free and Skype for Business both installed. We have a subscription we use on Skype to enable click to call. However the click to call extension on Edge is now booting Skype for Business to attempt to make calls. 


Does anyone have experience with this issue? I would like the click to call to launch Skype free instead of S4B. 


Thank you for reading.

  1. Search for and open the Default app settings in Windows 10
  2. Scroll down and select Set defaults per app. Scroll down to Skype and click on Manage button.
  3.  You now see a list of all URLS that can be associated to Skype. If there is any application (Skype for Business in this examle) that you want to change, click on that application and change to Skype instead. I guess you want to change the settings for TEL


This article describes how to set it for Teams so you have to replace Teams with Skype in your change.
