Where is my contacts list?

Where is my contacts list?! Not only has Hotmail moved to Outlook, which is utter rubbish, but Messenger has moved to Skype which is utter nonsense. Where is my contact list? All I have is a Skype page which shows me my profile and ways to update it, or asking me to upgrade and pay for additional features. I am an original user of Skype. Where are my contacts? My Messenger or even original Skype contacts? And yes, I have downloaded the new version of Skype and have a fully functioning computer. Infuriating!

Re: Where is my contacts list?

Have you already installed Skype app?

 

Run Skype app. Under People you will see the contacts.

 

You can also install Skype desktop client. (Except WinRT)

Re: Where is my contacts list?

Yep, very frustrating. Where are my contacts!  Imagine with all the tech support working for skype and none of them think that the welcome page (after we signed in) is not friendly at all. Yes techies, trying to find where the contact list to start calling is very user UNfriendly!

I have the same problem after I downloaded the new version - my whole welcone page changed. Yeah, they showed all the neat features we could get but then where is that start calling button - GRRR! I need to call people but with this new features it is like finding a needle in the haystacks where Skype forgot to put the needle in.

Please someone 'almighty' from Skype, please (pretty please) put a start calling button on your welcome page to at least bring me to the contact list? Or something to point me to my contacts.

Downloading some links nowadays is very worrisome for me - as you've noticed advertisers are very active - super active this days that when you click on the website you want - the page you get is a commercial advertisement. I wish Skype will just put the START CALLING button on their new vrsion welcome page.

Re: Where is my contacts list?

Just install the "normal" desktop application and use it in the same way as on any other Windows system. The currently latest Skype 6.7.0.102 version can be installed using this msi-installer:

Re: Where is my contacts list?

 I thought I already downloaded Skype.  I have been a customer for a long time.   I hope I don't loose my list of people.

Re: Where is my contacts list?

very pissed off. do't appreciate the un holy alliance between microsoft and skype, and really pissed off that I have now spent over half an hour on the new version of skype and no sign of any answer to why I CANT FIND MY CONTACTS. Do you have morons working for you, or is this deliberate to waste my time and or drive us all crazy.

 

be assured that as soon as I find an alternative I will leave skype for this insulting treatment of loyal customers.

 

and everyone is having the same problem, and now answers appear. why is there no customer support, and why have you let a new page be designed that hides contacts? horribly insulting
