Question about Computers & Internet
Adding friends on skype may seem difficult or confusing at first, but you can do it in a few steps. Of course, sign in. Look at the left hand side where there is an icon that looks like a silhouette of a person then a plus sign. Click on that then type the name of the person you are wanting to add. You can search for them by their email, their skype name or their real name. If there's one match in the search results, and it's the person you're looking for, click their name or profile picture.If more than one name matches your search, find the person you're looking for and click their name or profile picture.If you cannot find your friend in the search results but you're sure they're on Skype, just ask them what their Skype Name is and add them to your contacts.In the top right corner of the window, click Add to Contacts and enter some text to introduce yourself. This is important to let your friend know that you're adding them as your Skype contact. When you're done, just click Send. The new person is now added to your contacts but will be displayed with a question mark until they add you back.
