How to edit a contacts name

How do you edit a contacts name in Skype for Windows 8 as I group and add the company name of the people on my Skype list or like to change people random Skype ID to something meaningful.

 

I have tried left/right click on the name / contact etc and nothing.

Re: How to edit a contacts name

Contact name editing is not supported yet in Skype for Windows 8. Please use the Skype for Windows Desktop application to edit contact details: http://beta.skype.com/en/download-skype/skype-for-windows/

Wow! Incredible! How could an App be released with such a basic and important feature missing. That's sort of like selling a keyboard without a delete key!

Re: How to edit a contacts name

If I download the Skype for Windows desktop application and use it to edit my skype contacts, will those edits show up in my Skype for Windows 8 contact list and my Skype program on my Android phone?
