Edit Contact

How can I edit the contact information, e.g.. tel.,#? It used to be very easy. I just right-click on the contact, go to the edit menu and change it there. Nor is there a contact edit menu nor, is there any other apparent way to change the contact information.

Re: Edit Contact

Why is it that when they upgrade things it changes simple tasks into impossible tasks..... if something is user friendly then leave it alone i.e. the editing of a contacts phone numbers etc.!!

Re: Edit Contact

It is possible to easily change add extra phone numbers and the name of the contact which is visible to you. All you have to do is open their profile page (rightclick on contact>show profile) and click the blue 'add number' text. However, phone number and contact name are the only things that can be edited. Email, Skype ID, Location, Time, and other details cannot be edited.

Hi,

 

You might try to do it from AddressBook.

Maybe...

Re: Edit Contact

I think I will put forward the question again: How shall I edit a contact I already have in my address list? Example - I want to change or delete a phone number -how to do this? Someone that is responsible for Skype should be able to answer here - right.

If the contact information has come from a contact to whom you've sent a request I don't think you can. The information is from their own Skype profile. If you're talking about your Mac address book (assuming you've selected Show Address Book Contacts in Preferences, you just edit it as any other address.

Re: Edit Contact

Sorry - I am afraid I got in a wrong group since I have PC, not MAC. But perhaps the case is same anyway. I have never imported any contacts from any source like Outlook or like. I have used Skype to put in contact information directly (or imported Skype contact)

Re: Edit Contact

Delete your contact and create a new one.  Remember to write down the information you want to save.  Also there is no mechanism for recording more than ONE phone number.  Ain't it great? :cool:

Re: Edit Contact

YOUR answer is great! :happy: Next time I have trouble with Skype, maybe I shall look in my old DOS-manual for a tip.
