My parents just got a new MAC and I set Skype up for them, but I must be an idiot because I can't find a way to logout of their account so I can login to mine.

Hi,

 

Go to 'File' menu and there select 'SignOut' item.

Top left of your monitor.  When Skype is the front-running application, the top of the screen starts with the Apple logo.  Next comes Skype.  The third item is File.  Select it to reveal the dropdown list of items under that heading, and Bob's your uncle...

Sorry, but this is amazin - I can't find the logout/change account option neither...

I'm on a Skype 5.6.0.143 mac installation, and I don't see an logout/account button in the Skype window itself, or in the menu (nor in the File > submenu...)

Is this just me being 200% blind?? I only realised today, because I'm on my work computer which is always on the same account, but now my wife needed to login to her account :-)

 

Thanks!

I couldn't find it either until I enlarged the tabbed skype page-- i.e. the yellow button was highlighted with all of the skype info, so I just clicked the green button and then the whole screen was filled with the login page, and at that point, I could now see the very top of the screen that had the File button on it. Before, in the scaled-down view, that menu bar was hidden.
