    I can delete skype


    Why I cant delete skype from my computer? I have tried it all (it is not listed in my programmes so I can remove it from there)

    After spending almost two hours deleting all the skype related entries in the register, I am left with two that simply will not get deleted (gives me an error message that says:

    Can not delete

    Microsoft-Windows-Skype-ORTC-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~0.0.0.0: Error while deleting key

    Deleted Skype Contacts Still in the People App

    Hi Mateja,

    From your issue description, I understand that you want to remove Skype contacts from People app. Not to worry, I am here to help you with this issue.

    As an initial troubleshooting step, I suggest you to hide Skype contacts by applying filter and check if this helps.

    Follow these steps:

    • Open People app and click on Settings.
    • Now click on Filter contact list.
    • Uncheck Skype from list and click on Done.
    You may also delete contacts manually.

    Right click on contact name one by one and click on Delete.

    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.

    Thank you.

    Skype?

    As this is a now quite established messenger system of sorts perhaps a Skype feature for people skype names so perhaps some real time problem solving/discussions could be mounted?
    Just a wee suggestion.
    What does everyone else think?

    I can delete skype

    Deleting Skype contact

    Microsoft Lumia 640. Windows 8.1.

    How do I go about deleting Skype contacts from my people app?

    Tried to do a clean start with contacts. All the personal & work related contacts were mixed up. Deleted all the contacts & was planning on using different accounts for personal & work until I ran into this issue.

    These are neither personal or work related, actually its my vehicle workshop number which is showing up as a Skype contact.

    If I right click on the contact I get the "Pin to start" & "Edit" options with delete grey out. I tried via Skype & there is no listing of such a contact. Tried deleting it via Skype app on my phone & the only option I get on right click is "add to favorites"

    Found a couple of suggestions given to deselect the Skype account which I know will do the trick but it will also make the contacts I want disappear. Any help greatly appreciated.

    Vijay.
