If you’ve created a new Skype account and want to transfer your contacts from your old account to your new one, you can do this in Skype for Windows, Mac and Linux.
If you’re using the same Skype account but on a new computer, you don’t need to transfer your contacts – just sign in to Skype on your new device and your contacts will be right there.
There are a couple of ways to transfer your contacts. You can back up your contacts to a file, or you can send your contacts form one account to the other.
To back up your contacts to file:
Sign in to Skype with your old account details.
Click Contacts, then click Advanced > Backup Contacts to File.
Navigate to where you want to save the file on your computer, then click Save.
Click Skype > Sign out to sign out of your old account.
Sign in to Skype with your new account details.
Click Contacts, then click Advanced > Restore Contacts from File.
Find the file that you saved on your computer, then click it and click Open. Your contacts will appear in your new account.
To transfer your contacts, you need to send them from one account to the other.
Make sure that both accounts appear in each other’s contacts lists, then sign in to Skype with your old account details.
Sign out of your old account, then sign in with your new account details. You’ll see the contacts in your new account.
Send a contact request to each of the contacts.
