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.

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!

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?


Thanks - LRKP06
