How to Delete Contacts in Skype

Updated October 29, 2018

Skype for Windows and the Mac uses a list that lets you manage your contacts. This list supports both Skype members and landline or mobile telephone numbers and allows you to place contacts in groups. If you want to remove someone from your contacts list, you can choose to simply delete the contact or block the contact from communicating with you. If you choose to block a contact, you can also report the user for abuse.
