Hello David
When adding a contact where can you add their phone number or how can you add a link to the phone number contact listed so when you click on the number to dial you see whom you are dialing.
Thanks......William Rugino

Hello William,

Open Skype and right click on the contact you want to change and click View Profile. In the box that appears click on Add Number to add another number to the contact profile.

Thanks,

David.
