This article explains how to turn “Caller ID” on or off in Skype on Windows 11.
Skype is a popular video chat and messaging application by Microsoft. It allows users to make voice and video calls, send instant messages, and share files with other Skype users for free over the internet.
One can configure many settings with Skype, including turning contact-only Skype calls on or off, hiding or unhiding the Today tab, turning Auto-download photos and files on or off, pasting copied messages as quotes, changing text size, sending messages with Enter key, showing the mini menu when selecting text, turning notifications on or off, and more.
When you use Skype call mobile and landline phones or send SMS messages, your caller ID is hidden by default. You can turn it on with a few clicks.
You may want to show or hide Caller ID in Skype for various reasons. Sometimes, you may want to hide your Caller ID to protect your privacy or to avoid receiving unwanted calls. On the other hand, you may want to show your Caller ID so that the recipient knows who is calling.
Additionally, some organizations may require employees to show their Caller ID when making business calls. Whatever the reason, Skype allows you to turn Caller ID on or off with just a few clicks.
