As Skype is one of Microsofts biggest acquisitions in recent years it’s no surprise that the tech giant is working hard to incorporate it into Windows as much as possible. After going on a bit of a sabbatical with Skype, chasing the Snapchat/Instagram market, Microsoft has finally decided to double down on Skypes professional nature, bringing the VOIP client back to its roots.
As part of this transition back to a serious product, Skype has recently acquired Cortana support in the way of Suggested Responses.

As the new feature is enabled by default, it may not be for everyone, so follow along as this article shows you how to disable Suggested Responses in Skype.
