deleting an username in the log in screen

[ Edited ]

Hi there,

 

I would like to delete an user name that appears in my log in screen. It belongs to a friend but its kinda "disturbing" and I dont want my other friends to see it when they try to log in in my computer. Does anyone have the idea how to do that?

 

Thanx.

You have to delete from your hard disk the "data" folder which correspond to the account... for example:

C:\Users\YourWindowsAccount\AppData\Roaming\Skype\UserNameToDelete

Re: deleting an username in the log in screen

The only thing I can add is the actual path may vary between XP and Vista/Win7.

 

You can find the folder you want to remove by holding the Windows key, typing r, and in the box that comes up type %appdata%\Skype.  Looks for and delete the folder with the Skype name you want to remove.
