How to Make Skype Stop Opening Automatically (Windows)

I don't use Skype often but I want to have it on my computer. However, it kept opening automatically and trying to get me to login. I kept clicking to quit it, but I finally decided today that it's time to solve this issue so I did some Googling and figured it out from a Skype forum (not the actual Skype help). I thought it couldn't hurt to post this so the answer is easier to find.

The tricky thing is that you first have to login in order to get all of the options to do this. 

When you're logged in, go to Tools in the top toolbar and click Options, at the bottom. Then you'll get the window below; uncheck the box for "Start Skype when I start Windows" and Save it.
