Sign into Skype using your Skype name and password.
Look for the Add Contacts icon, which looks like a person with a plus sign next to it.
Type in the person's full name, Skype name or email address in the search box that pops up.
Click on the profile of the person you want to add to your contacts. If more than one profile pops up, scroll through the list of profiles until you find the one you are looking for. Click on Add to Contacts, which is highlighted in blue in the upper right corner of the profile window.
Write a greeting to the contact in the window that pops up, letting the person know you are adding him to your contact list. A prepared greeting is usually already written, which you can also use. Click the Send button. The person is now in your contacts, but his icon only shows up as a question mark until he accepts your contact request.
