Duplicate Contacts

Is there a way to combine contacts? I have several Skype, Outlook and Facebook contact showing up 3 times. My main contact list is in Outlook.

Re: Duplicate Contacts

Same problem here.  I combined with Messenger but now everybody is showing up twice or three times.  How can I merge as opposed to deleting these extra contacts?

Re: Duplicate Contacts

Yes, I would like to know that too.

On Windows 8, the "People" app merges them, but the Skype app for Windows 8 does not? Neither the desktop version.

It's quite a mess I have to say, specially when you have contacts from everywhere.

Re: Duplicate Contacts

If your contact list gets too large, you may want to remove some duplicate contacts from Skype.

1. Right-click on the name of the contact you would like to delete. If you can't find it, type the contact's name into the search bar at the top of the Contacts pane.


2. Select "Remove from Contacts" from the drop-down menu. A new window appears.

 

3. Click "Remove Contact."

Hope that will help you !

Re: Duplicate Contacts

thank you, but the issue is that I do not want to delete this contacts.

I want a posability to merge them, could be that on one contact I got more information then another (on same contact person).
