To remove a Contact, right-click on the contact you wish to remove. Then, at the bottom of the right-click menu, click "remove from contacts". Like this Post? Add Kudos!

Re: Removing Facebook contacts from Skype

I have a number of contacts that have "appeared" (even a Group of names) and when I click on them there is no "remove contact" option in the menu....  How do I remove them?

Re: Removing Facebook contacts from Skype

with regard to facebook contacts, the remove option is not available.  that option will only show for regular Skype contacts.

Re: Removing Facebook contacts from Skype

There is no "remove Contacts" option at the bottom when i right click on the contact. So how do we remove a contact from the contacts list?

Re: Removing Facebook contacts from Skype

I have the same question. I can do the right click and remove with my "normal" Skype contacts, but not with the ones from Facebook. I already disconnected Facebook from my Skype account, and I deleted the Skype app from my Facebook. I deleted Skype, and re-installed it, but nothing worked. I really want these contacts away from my Skype account, can someone please help?

Have you tried with Contacts -> Hide Facebook Firends?
