let Skype sign in with your friend's account, and then click Skype (menu command) and then slide down to Sign Out to get the Sign In screen

I have several usernames on my startscreen and want to delete them and do not want them. How do I do that?

by default Run is not provided on the Start menu for Vista or Win7, which is why I always suggest holding down the 'Windows' key on your keyboard and then pressing 'r' to open the Run dialog

 

then type in %appdata%\skype and press Enter to cause Windows Explorer to open and display the contents of the Skype folder

 

now (in the Skype folder) locate the folder(s) that correspond to the Skype Names that you no longer wish to see on the Sign In dropdown menu, and delete each of them

 

re-start Skype and verify that the unwanted Skype Names are gone

you can uninstall/delete Skype software from your computer, but your Skype Name (which defines your Skype account) lives forever

 

if you don't wish to use it any more, then simply stop using it
