Two separate accounts on one computer

I have a skype account. I have just inherited my father-in-laws PC and want to use it when in this country. There is skype on the machine but I want to put my account on it, not his.Because of his demise I am not able to know his password to change anything. Any information would be gratefully received

Re: Two separate accounts on one computer

To delete your father-in-law's account:


Quit Skype.  Hold the Windows key and type r.  In the box that comes up type %appdata%\Skype <enter>


Find and delete the folder with the Skype name you want to remove.


Re-start Skype.
