The groups in Skype seem to be ordered alphabetically, starting with:
- All Contacts
- American Contacts
- British Contacts
- Canadian Contacts
Within any group, the order is apparently:
- Contacts which are online at the moment (sorted alphabetially by first
- Contacts which are SkypeOut contacts (sorted by first letter)
- Contacts which are offline at the moment (sorted by first letter).
The fact this contact list moves around (depending on who is online or not)
and the fact that the SkypeOut contacts are not next to their respective
computer-to-computer contacts makes the whole contact list order confusing,
at least to me.
I still haven't figured it out. And, to judge by the responses to this
query, neither has anyone else.
Pity. Skype is so otherwise intuitive.
