Conducting a simple search for a fellow skyper

You can get started by searching for fellow skypers. To do that, follow these steps:
  1. Locate the Windows Start button on the lower-left corner of your desktop and choose Start>Skype to launch Skype. The Sign In to Skype window opens.
  2. Enter your Skype username (that is, your Skype Name) in the Skype Name box.
  3. Enter your Password in the Password box.
  4. Click Sign In. The Skype program window opens. The menu across the top contains File, View, Contacts, Tools, Call, and Help.
  5. From the Skype menu, choose Contacts>Search for Skype Users. Alternatively, you can click the Search icon to bring up the Search window.
  6. Enter the person’s name in the uppermost text box. In our example, the name Newbie Skyper appears in that box. You can start your search by entering a full name. If your friend has not added his or her name to a profile, you may not be able to find the person this way.
  7. Click Search. Skype searches through its directory to find the name you entered. When found, this name appears in the lower half of the Search window under “We found 1 contact.
