Skypes little known in chat commands

If  found myself needing to give admin rights to everyone in my skype chat group but couldn’t find anything to support it in the GUI, then I descovered the Skype commands buried in their website. Below are some key entries, all of which are entered in the chat bar;

  • /kick [Skype Name] – removes the user from the group, they can later be added
  • /setrole [Skype Name] MASTER – sets the user stipulated as an aditional admin
  • /showmembers – displays a list of members and their role
  • /info – shows number of people in the chat and maximum number available
