How to Delete a Skype Name


Skype is a software application that lets you make free computer-to-computer "phone" calls through a high-speed Internet connection. You can also call landlines for a nominal fee, making Skype a great way of communicating internationally or while traveling. One adds Skype contacts in much the way one would add Facebook friends, creating a network of contacts. If you'd like to remove one of these contacts from your network, all it takes is a few clicks of your mouse.

Things You'll Need

  • Computer
  • Skype
  • Run the Skype application on your computer. You don't have to be connected to the Internet to delete a name.

  • Left-click on the name you want to delete from your contact list.

  • Click on the pull-down menu of common actions (the button on the far left underneath the input window).

  • Select "Remove From Contacts".

Tips & Warnings

  • If you want to be sure of not receiving messages or Skype calls from the person you're about to delete, select "Block" in the pull-down menu before you remove them from your contact list, or simply block them without removing them from the list.
