How to permanently uninstall Skype from Windows 10 Pro

I have Windows 10 Pro and Skype Number subscription, as well as Office 365 annual subscription.

I'm really pi**ed off with Skype from Windows Store. It lacks a lot of features that I need to make calls with my customers and have a lot of misbehaviors, like missing {code} feature and terrible Skype Calls  (from VoIP of my registered number). The user interface is worse than the classic, BTW.

Therefore I NEED to use Classic Skype for all these features. I don't know what the h**l is going on on Office 365 or the Windows OS itself, but everytime I uninstall this s**t of Skype from Windows Store and reboots it reappears and takes place over the Classic Skype.

Why it cannot be PERMANENTLY UNINSTALLED??? How can I fix this problem? Is there any way to open a ticket at Microsoft Support? Any suggestions?

Try to uninstall it from Powershell and restart and let me know if it pops up again.

Windows Key+X > Windows Powershell (Admin) > Copy the below, paste into Powershell > Enter

Get-AppxPackage -allusers Microsoft.SkypeApp | Remove-AppxPackage
