can't delete anyone from skype.


Kimmie
 

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.


Michele Barbi
 

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.

Bye!

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.

Ah, I actually never used favorites, I'll have to verify if you have to remove the contact from favorites prior to deleting it.

Hi,

I think the only way to do it is to go into the person's profile. Although
there's a way to simply delete contacts, I've found that the best way is to
actually click on the "block contact" button.

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.

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.

TO find out what version you are running, If you are using jaws, go to the skype Window, and hit JawsKEY+Ctrl+V.
Another way is in the skype Window, Press Alt+H for help, then down arrow to about and press enter.
You'll see what version you are running in that dialog.

Kimmie
 

Hi John. What's the latest version please? Somehow I have an awful feeling I'm not up to date.

Latest Skype version for Windows desktop is 8.78.0.159. Not sure if it has been updated for Microsoft Store, if you still have 8.77 and you used the Store app, try to open the Windows store, go to the view more menu, and choose downloads and updates, and finally find recover updates and you press space and verify if it's get updated. Alternatively, pass to the Windows desktop one going here: www.skype.com/go/getskype-full

The way I delete a contact, rarely though I do it, is this:

1. Type Alt+2 to bring up the contact list.

2. Find the contact.

3. Press the Menu or Application key to get a context menu for the contact.

4. Select the "Delete Contact" option and press Enter.

I just verified this process in Skype 8.78.0.159.
