Let me see if I understand this - you want to view the contact list that one of your friends has on Skype?
If that's the case, the only way you can see someone else's contacts is to either log into their account, or sit next to them while they do.
yes. u should be able to, at the left side there should be a little symbol like a semi circle with a little person in. if this doesnt work or you cant find it, go to your profile and click contacs.
