    I have the new UWP version of Skype on my mobile, SP3 and desktop, if I am at home I would normally answer on my desktop, if out of course it would be on my mobile.

    But a thought struck me, my PC is always on and if someone calls me on Skype the PC will make a racket until I answer, as I work shifts this could be annoying if it's late.

    I like my PC being always on. So how can I easily make sure incoming Skype calls don't wake every one else up.

    No good changing online status as that changes it for YOU, not the device (Tried it), I also don't want the hassle of signing out of Skype, as when I come in I will forget to turn it back on, and when I do I have the hassle of signing in again.

    So at the moment my only option is to mute the PC.

    In an ideal world geo-fencing would be used, when I go a few hundred yards away with my mobile Skype would know I am out and kill the desktop and SP3, but that is probably asking too much of Skype (Took them over a year to realise they really should do a UWP).

    Or have the Skype live tile have the ability to mute Skype for that device !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Are there any other one click options?

    That always been like that, even on Win8 and older Skype. It's a service, not an app, if you set it Online, you appear online in all skype workd.
    Imagine skype as a wired line of phones at home. They rings all togheter!
    Me and my collegues got habit since ever always logging out skype on pc we left, if moving to another pc (MSN + Skype)

    That's the only logic option
