Sent out a couple of incorrect contact requests. They have not been accepted. I wish to delete or recall these requests from the main Skype UI to reduce the clutter. Can someone assist with instructions on how to remove these?

 

Thanks!

I think it is not possible to cancel pending contact requests.  But you can remove the usernames of the contacts (in your contact list tab) to whom you have pending request the same process of removing or deleting a existing contact.

Thank you for the prompt reply.

 

I was able to 'Delete' the contact from my Skype contacts however (and I think this is my issue) they continue to remain listed in the History pane on the left side of the Skype window.

 

I'm running the Mac version.

 

Thanks,

Hi,

 

But does that means that the recipient can still see our contact request sent to them? Even after we deleted them or blocked them?

On a Mac, in the left hand pane, hold the ctrl button and click your mouse on the name of the person that invited you to be their skype contact. A pop-down menu will appear. Click "close" and that contact will be removed.

Yes. This worked for me (mac os x). However if the contact is in your mac contacts, it will not remove the skype contact until you remove it from your mac contacts first. =)

Hello! DaHappyHelper here! =) if anyone is using Skype go / tablet version then all you have to is go into contacts (people) or where ever the contact is, and hold your finger on the contact so that a cross appears on the top corner of the contact "box". Tap the cross that appears to remove the contact or cancel the request. Hope this helped you guys!
