Deleting User names

Hi, I have a lot of people that use my skpe.  However, I don't like for their User Names to be on my list.  

I recently updated my mac to Mountain Lion and now I am no longer able to delete them.

Before the update, I used to click on Library>Application Support>Skype>username, and just delete it from there.  

Now, Skype isn't even under Application support... Any suggestions?

In the Finder, try hitting CMD-SHIFT-G to reveal the hidden folder.

Re: Deleting User names

I tried doing that and searching for "skype" and "application support".  It said that the folder couldn't be found... :sad:

Re: Deleting User names

No, I got it to work!  I went to Finder>"mycomputersname">Command_Shift_G>typed in library>Application Support>Skype.  It was there and it works now.  I don't know why it wasn't working the other ways... Thanks!

Re: Deleting User names

Findeer is the icon at the bottom left of your dock at the bottom of your screen. It's not a part of Skype but a part of the Mac OS. Hope that helps you and points you in the right direction.

Oops, spelling error in my previous message, sorry.

 

"Finder" is the icon at the bottom left of your dock at the bottom of your screen. It's not a part of Skype but a part of the Mac OS. Hope that helps you and points you in the right direction.
