How do I remove a contact from my contacts list in the windows 8 version of skype? The contact is an old skpe name that is not used anymore.
Has anyone figured this out yet as I have a few I would like to remove. Not liking windows 8 and it's like trying to play a piano with mittens on!
Run Skype. Under people, select / highlight the contact you want to remove >> Right Click >> Click Remove.
Did you select the contact?
Ok so I dont think they quite explain it well. Here's what you do. In skype, scroll over to your contacts. Click on the contact as if you were to start a conversation. Then, anywhere on the screen, right click once. At the very bottom right corner of your screen will be 3 buttons. The one in the very corner will show a skype person symbol with an X and will say "remove" beneath it. Click on this, and it will ask you "are you sure?" That's all there is to it. I wish helpers in forums were more in-depth and lengthy with their answers
Deleting contacts is not permanent. It still shows on skype, which means you can put contacts back on your list, if you change your mind.
