I've had lots of different people log into their skype accounts using my laptop, I've noticed all their usernames are available from the drop down menu when I go to log in.. How do I remove these and stop skype remembering usernames in the future? I am using windows 7 and version 5.5 of skype.
You can remove previous users names but, unforutnately, there's no option not to remember user names used in the future. They'd just have to be deleted after they've been used.
To remove names that are stored, Quit Skype. Hold the Windows key and type r. In the box that comes up type %appdata%\Skype <enter>.
Delete the folders with any Skype names you want to remove.
Done. For now.

I have to agree! I have a need for Skype in a public kiosk area and the inability to clear username history is ridiculous in this day and age! Come on Microsoft!! THINK PRIVACY
For using Skype on public computers it’s best to use “portable” Skype installed on an USB drive.
