Trying to remove skype from windows 10?

Hi,

So every time i load up my pc skype always auto starts.

I never even installed skype and i dont use it, Id like to remove it from my system but skype does not show under the "uninstall a program" section in control panel.

So what i was thinking was to do a search for skype under my C drive and manually delete everything that has the word skype in it.

My question is should i do this?

This is a blanket search and destroy for every file and folder that has skyp in its name.

Are there any files i should look out for to not remove.

I just want to make sure im not going to be harming my system in anyway by preforming this action.

Thank you for any helpful recommendations and suggestion.

    So start Skype up and when it starts off push thing that says settings and uncheck the box that says start automatically with Windows then it won't start automatically with Windows anymore
