Re : Removing login names from dropdown list

  1. Right click Skype in the Dock and click Quit (close Skype).
  2. From Finder top menu, select Go To > Go to folder
  3. Enter ~/Library/Application Support/Skype and press Enter
  4. Delete the folder named after the username that you would like to remove

Now start Skype and the names should be removed ...

This doesn't seem to work with OSX 10.7 -- I cannot find any Skype folder under libarary applications.

 

Anyone know how to do in OS X Lion?

Hi,

 

Assuming you know how to make so folders become visible under Lion, You might try ~Library/Application Support >>> Skype  :wink:

Re: Removing login names from dropdown list

Hi,

 

Once all the-no-more-wanted-names folders have been removed, did you restart your Mac before launching Skype again ?
