How to organize contacts on Skype?



Hi Gegonia,

While there is a solution to the first part of your question, there is not a real solution for the second part. I mean, you can- of course- customize and sort your contacts under any group you want to create yourself. Skype itself does not provide anything of this sort automatically.

You can create groups and add contacts to them as per your own preferences according your relationships with the contact. Skype will then show the contacts under the groups you have created. To do this you can follow one of the posts above.

Secondly, there is no way that Skype uses to organize the contacts according to the frequency they are contacted. However, it keeps record of the recent logs of the contacts you have communicated with. So, you can’t really organize them according to the frequency that you have used them.

Hope it serves to your query.
