    Profile information displayed is only what that contact chooses to reveal about themselves. You can learn more about profiles and privacy. To see a contact’s profile information:

    1. Sign into Skype.
    2. In the Contacts or Recent list, right-click the contact’s name and select View Profile to display the Profile window.
    3. Click Close once you’re done.

    You can also see a summary of a contact’s profile at the top of the conversation window. In the Contacts or Recent list, click the contact’s name to reveal the conversation window on the right.
