When you open a chat window in Skype and invite other users into the chat, you're given a set of administrative powers accessible through commands typed into the chat box. Two such commands exist for removing people from the chat -- one to simply eject them, and one to eject them and prevent them from returning.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Ensure that you are the host of the Skype chat you're in. If you created the chat, you'll be the host by default; otherwise, the chat creator can grant you host privileges by typing:

    /setrole [username] MASTER

    where "[username]" is your Skype username.

  2. 2

    Type "/kick [username]" to eject a user from the chat.

  3. 3

    Type "/kickban [username]" to eject a user and prevent them from returning. They will be banned from the chat until it ends or the ban is lifted. Type "/set banlist -[username]" to remove a user from the banlist and allow them to rejoin the chat.
