Skype is a program that allows users to communicate through instant messaging, video messaging and voice calling. As of March 2011, Skype accounts are free to set up, and anyone with an e-mail address can have one. When you want to talk to people on Skype, you add them as a contact and input their data -- specifically, their Skype username and any phone numbers you want to be able to reach them at. If your contact list gets too large, you may want to remove some duplicate contacts from Skype.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Right-click on the name of the contact you would like to delete. If you can't find it, type the contact's name into the search bar at the top of the Contacts pane.

  2. 2

    Select "Remove from Contacts" from the drop-down menu. A new window appears.

  3. 3

    Click "Remove Contact."
