Re: deleting Skype names on login

try opening location  User/Library/Application Support/Skype then delete the folder named after the Skype Name you wish to remove from the sign-in screen.

 

*User is your computer name

Re: deleting Skype names on login

I am unable to find any folder in application support for skype no matter where I look ...under any user! / computer name, is there some specific file I can search for  or some other way of deleting login names?

Re: deleting Skype names on login

No highlighting and deleting does not work ...go back to the dropdown menu and its still there. So no one at skype it would appear is able to provide a solution as to how this can be done!!!? very dissappointing at the lack of support.

Re: deleting Skype names on login

Make sure you have Skype *not* running while you delete these folders. When you start Skype next time the deleted folder names should not be shown on the dropdown.

Did my reply answer your question? Accept it as a solution to help others, Thanks.
