How to find skype name from microsoft account?

I'm not quite sure where I should place this so I thought this would be a proper place. But the subject says it all. How do I find my skype name if I have a microsoft account. I know it says live:accountnamehere but I need to log in via web browser and I need my Skype ID. DANKE!

If you have Microsoft account, then your login ID is the email address that you have used to create this account (e.g. eggplantcomputers@something.com or similar). Your given Skype name (e.g. live:eggplantcomputers) can't be used as login ID, but your friends can search for you using this name.

Well is there anyway to find a login ID I can use? Because I need it in a browser and I can't enter my [Removed for privacy] thing.
