Quit skype with alt-F4 (Autohotkey needed)

Oct 20th, 2016

Due to overzealous user interface design Skype does not close with alt-F4 but instead minimises. That is not considered good behaviour.

I have found no setting in Skype to restore it normal Windows behaviour.

So I found and copied a Authotkey script that restores makes alt-F4 properly close Skype.
