Customer Question
For some reason, most...

For some reason, most of my Skype contact list has disappeared.

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update Skype?

I think it was about a week or so ago, when they told me there was an update but I am hazy on that point, as it happens regularly

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Software Expert to know before I connect you?

I just have a problem with my Skype contact list

Sign in to Skype and select Contacts > Hide Contacts Who and make sure that alloptions are unticked. ... If you cannot see your Microsoft Outlook contacts within your Skype contact list, make sure that Outlook is running, then open Skype and click Contacts > Show Outlook Contacts (if this option isn't ticked already).

If you have ever made a backup of your contacts, then you can restore them by doing the following:

  1. Open Skype and sign in with your username and password.
  2. From the menus go to: Contacts (in Skype 3.8 go to Tools instead) -> Advanced -> Restore contacts from file …
    1. Find your backup file, select it and click Open.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
