Hello,

You can't change your Skype Name on your present account although you can change the name which appears on your Forum posts.

Yes, it will display your real Skype name and as you can see there is no method to change your real Skype name other than creating a new Skype name.

Re: How I can change my registered skype name?

I've been fooling with skype for hours over the last two days.....and now I hate the darn thing......its been a nightmare to set up on my hp tablet.....I finally removed and installled again.....but it will not let me use the same sign in or name so all the fees I paid to set up orginally and use internationally dont or wont transfer over.....what a bummer.....if I find another options I will not continue to use....unless there is some way to fix this.
