Click on the Start Menu, type in Powershell then right-click on the Windows PowerShell icon that will appear and select Run as Administrator. From there, type in the command below and press on Enter.
Get-AppxPackage *skypeapp* | Remove-AppxPackage

Edit: If you have it installed, you can also uninstall it from the Control Panel, under Programs and Features.
