I have lots of history and people under "calls" but I don't know how to get rid of them, I've deleted them all from my Skype contacts but for some reason they are still in there

This part is for Skype for Business, not for Skype Consumer.

Please go to https://support.skype.com/skype/windows-desktop/ for support.

To do that, following these steps did the job

 

11

 

22

 

 

33

 

in that list, removing someone also removes their call/chat history, both.

 

There are also support articles in here

Hopefully a section for UWP Skype will be added too in this forum, because SFB is being replaced by Microsoft Teams.

Teams has a lot more features.
