how to remove a username from the log-in screen?

Hello everyone,

 

I have an annoying problem and don't know how to solve it.

What happened is that my ex-girlfriend used to use my laptop to log-in to het skype account. But in the log-in screen always keeps appearing her name just like mine does.

I used various registry cleaners and uninstalled and re-installed skype and that didn't have any result.

 

How can I remove users from the log-in screen?

 

Thanks for all the help.

Basically you need to delete account folder. I think second part of this FAQ will help: https://support.skype.com/en-gb/faq/FA142/How-do-I-delete-my-profile-or-Skype-Name

problem adding new user to the log-in window (as it auto opens with existing user too quickly)

Hi, 

We are having troubles adding additional users to the login screen on our apple mac. 

When you click on the skype logo it auto logs in the same user each time and it's so quick that you can't unclick the auto log in box, or scroll down to change users.

 

We have tried opening skype while disconnected to the internet, but same result.

 

Would love some help!

 

thanks,

Fleur

IN windows click the start

 

choose 'run' and type the following:    %appdata%/skype   hit enter

 

Delete the folders that correspond to the username you wish to delete
