The easiest way to find a contact in Skype for Mac OS X is to use the Search field in the upper right of the Skype window.
Simply start typing your contact’s name into the Search field and you’ll see the matching contacts under Conversations. Click the contact you were looking for to open the conversation window.
If you’re using the Search field to find a contact in your Mac’s Address Book, you’ll see all phone numbers associated with that contact next to their name.
You can also use the Search field to find keywords or topics in your chat history.
The contact is deleted from your contact list. This means they cannot see if you are online, but they can still leave you offline instant messages. You can block a contact to prevent them from communicating with you.
If you use the latest version of Skype there is no need to back up your contacts as they are stored centrally on our server and can be accessed anywhere as long as you sign in with the same Skype Name and password.

To create a Favorites section in the sidebar, go to a contact list, then right-click the contact and select Add to Favorites. This creates a Favorites section at the top of the sidebar, just under Contacts - if there wasn’t one already - and adds the selected contact or conversation.
You can add as many contacts or conversations to the Favorites section as you like. They will always appear in the sidebar, so you can easily find them.
To remove the contact or conversation from Favorites, right-click it and select Remove from Favorites.
