The default behaviour of Skype displays the list of your friends with profile photos. You may feel it is not essential as it occupies more space. Luckily this can be disabled and the old look almost restored. Hereís how to go about.

Hide profile pictures in Contact list


  • Open Skype account
  • Click on Tools, choose Options and then, General settings
  • Check/Uncheck: "Show profile pictures in Contact List".


Thatís it!
