Skype: How to disable "Typing" notification shown while you are typing.

A quickie on how to disable the "Typing" notification (shown in image below) in Skype?

This notification (typing symbol) is shown in a group chat or to the person with whom you are chatting while you are typing a message in chat window. Recently I realised it can be sometimes helpful to not show this typing notification to avoid being asked "Hey, what were you typing?"

There's a super simple way to do this, all you need to do is go to your Skype Preferences and highlight the Messaging tab and then un tick (de-select) the second last option that says "Show when I am typing".

Once disabled, there will be no "Typing" notifications shown to the users when you are typing in a Skype chat window.
