Is there a way to change my name display color in chat?

[ Edited ]

Currently it's grey. Is it possible to change the color to like the bright green they have for the video call tab or some other color so it would be more easy to see

i would also like to know this, especially now that we are having to change over from Live Messenger, which allowed us to do this.

The members of participants in the chat flow is showing in blue to me. Is that what you are referring to?

Maybe you can supply a screenshot marking exactly which element you are referring to.

Aha! You are referring to the Skype for Windows Desktop application. You started your topic in the Windows 8 board and I've moved it over now.

You are right, currently there's no way to customize the chat display in Skype for Windows desktop. I'll share your feedback with the product team.
