    Query regarding Contacts in People App


    Hi guys, I've been doing a little bit of cleaning of my contacts in People & Skype.

    I have removed contacts from Skype, and they are gone from Skype. However, when I try and remove said same contact from the Windows 8 People App......there is no option to remove/delete.

    Am I stuck with these contacts?? :S

    It might take a bit to sync from Skype to the People app.

    If you like, you could see if removing and adding back the Skype account in the People app will update it faster for you.
    If you wanted to hide all contacts instead from the Skype account in the People app, then the tutorial below can help show you how to.


    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Putting it another way, the only contacts that you can delete from the People App are contacts that you create in the People App since the other contacts actually belong to a different app.

    Try creating a simple contact with the first name of A and the last name of B while in the People App. Then swipe up from the bottom of the screen and you will see an option to delete that contact since it was created in that app and belongs to that app.
