How to delete a contact permanently from your contact list! (MAC)

Firstly, I joind this board as i didnt find the answer to my question of "how to permanently delete a contact fron your contact list" BUT I have done it now and thought i would share!

 

Every now and then we get people popping up and they appear in out contact history (on the left of the screen) and seem to be there permanently! I'd had enough and decided to try to get rid of the unwanted contacts. Heres what i found. I would block the contact but as we know blocking them dosen't remove them. What did remove them was when i hit the "report abuse radio button" after hitting the "block contact" radio button! 

I wasnt reporting them as abuse because that hadent done anything more than popping up on my screen. I just tried the "report abuse" radio button out of curiosity and it worked. I dont know if this will be the same for Windows userd but its worth a try. Hope this helps.

Mike

Re: How to delete a contact permanently from your contact list! (MAC)

I don't know why you'd want to give someone a black eye with Skype by reporting them as an abuser when they weren't.

 

In the Windows version if you right click on Contact and choose Block this person, you're given the choice of removing them from your contact list.  That should do it.

 

Or, if you just want to remove them but don't care about blocking them, you can right click and then select Remove from Contacts.

 

I don't see any need to report as abuse.

re: answer to question on "How to delete a contact on Mac"  -- My mother told me that if you don't have anything useful to say you shouldn't say anything at all.  This is a real problem for Mac users.  I'm very happy to hear that it works on PC's but I don't really care.

This is also a real problem that you are posting Mac questions on Windows forum.
