How To Add Contacts

  1.  The first and perhaps the easiest method to search and add contacts in Skype is using the Skype’s “Add a Contact” Window.   There are several ways to activate or open this window:
  • Click the “Contacts” Menu, then select “Add a Contact”.

  • Click The “Add a Contact” option on the main Skype Window.

  • Call the “Add a Contact” option using a Hotkey.

(Note: You can set the hotkey or key combination you desire to call the "Add a Contact" option by clicking menu Tools >> Options >> Advanced >> Hotkeys.)

You can search Skype users by the entering the following information:
  1. Email Address
  2. Phone Number (Skype Online Number)
  3. Full Name
  4. Skype Username
Just enter the information you have.   After a few seconds, Skype will display the list of user/s based from the details you provided.  If there are several results displayed, select the closest match, recheck then click the “Add” button if you are certain that that user is the one you are looking for.

Another window will appear, where you can also personalize or send a message to the person you wish to add.  Then just click "Send Request" to send the invite.

2.  You can also directly add Skype users that you recently interacted with.  By default, any Skype users can call or send you messages even if you are not in their contact list yet, or you haven’t added them yet in your list of contacts.

Click the Recent tab, then select and highlight the name of the user you want to add, and then click “Add to Contacts”.
