How to Create a Group on Skype

If you use Skype to communicate with business, personal and family contacts, groups help you organize various online profiles. Using a Skype group, your online friends appear in neatly ordered categories in the left task pane. Ungrouped friends appear as a long string of contacts. If you are new to Skype, you may not know how to add groups, but the process is straightforward.
