You don't, at least on mac os. I just went to contacts, right clicked on the
contact, clicked the delete option then confirmed. Are you updated to the
latest skype? I am aware you said yes, but just be double sure.

the contact from favorites prior to deleting it.

Hi there. I have a few people in my contacts who are now dead but I can't
for the life of me get rid of them. Also I seem to have a lot of contacts
which say after their name, read only. Does that mean I no longer have
them
on skype and I can get rid of them too? Thanks.

There are any number of reasons why someone might want to delete someone on Skype.
Maybe the person doesn't use Skype anymore.
Maybe they don't get along.
Maybe they added the person, but then realized later on that the person is Spam.
Maybe the person died.
Frankly, its nun of our business why.

Yes I am on the latest skype I think, and when I press the application key it says profile and remove from favorites and view profile. Nothing with delete anything, and if I try to delete a contact when I'm in the contact view it won't move out.

Hey Kimmie, not sure about the read-only thing but...

Try to press the applications key or shift+f10 from within the contact
in your contact list in order to open the context menu, latest option
should be delete contact. Beware though that in many older Skype 8
versions there was not this possibility, so make sure you updated Skype.

For those having Skype for Windows store, I am not sure if the updates
will really get late or what else, you can try to force the updates and
you do that by going in the show more button, then choose download and
updates in the menu, and hit the button which says recover updates. You
will at that point get all the updates, again I can't guarantee that
Skype will be updated but that's worth a try.

I know what you mean my friend, but I am sure I am in the main window. What happens is that when there are some important notifications we need to use JAWS to pc or re-activate pc cursor. By important notifications I mean for example that a reunion is ongoing. Let me know if I need to organize myself in order to make a sort of audio demo for this.

Split view makes chat windows appear as separate windows when you use Alt+Tab. It is turned on and off from the menu that appears when you press Space on the "More options" button that you reach with
the Tab key after you pass the Mood Message button.

Hi Stewart,

Split view is a mode where chat windows are separate by the main Skype window. Concerning JAWS 2019, I think it will work, though latest scripts revision increased the minimum JAWS version supported. I think the earliest supported version is 2018 rather than 17.0.

This is most curious and a bit concerning. I have received one other report of the Alt+1 issue in Skype 8.77; but I recently installed 8.77 myself and I am not able to reproduce that issue. Alt+1 works

for me as long as there is not a group chat currently on screen.

 

I am using the default Skype view, where chats appear inside the main window. Let me know if you are trying to do this in split view where the chats are in separate windows. I don't know if Alt+1 ever

worked from a separate window to jump back to the main one.

Re: skype scripts not working

My exact version number, where Alt+1 works as expected, is 8.77.00.97.

I just retested while making sure I'm using script revision 203. JAWS 2021. No problems. I'll probably get to a test under 2022 today or tomorrow.

Again though, Alt+1 is known to fail when a group chat is on screen, even under older Skype versions. That is on my list to examine. For now, I work around it by typing Ctrl+Tab until I have switched
to a non-group chat so that Alt+1 can work again.

Hi guys, yes I noticed that too but I didn't know about scripts revision 203,

Doug, if you're using Skype 8.77, also verify the exact version number,
considering that with 8.77.0.90 it worked ok, it began happening on 8.77.0.97.
Effectively, when there aren't missed calls in reunion or something else, it
works ok. BTW, the alternative is to re-activate virtual cursor, and in this
case you don't need to route JAWS to pc.
