Hi,

 

Go to 'File' menu >>> Sign out.

Then in displayed Welcome screen, select appropriate account from dropdown menu and fulfill tied password's field.

 

Et voilà !

It's just to the right of SKYPE at the top of your monitor (when Skype is the active window).  Click it to reveal the drop-down menu; Sign Out is the last item in the list.

You are describing the Skype window.  The File menu I referred to is at the top of your screen.  When Skype is active, the top left corner of the screen shows an Apple icon.  Next is Skype.  To the right of that is File.  Click on File.  This is NOT to be found in the Skype window itself.  It's the off-white band across the full width of your monitor.

Sign out.  Then sign in with the account you prefer.  Follow the guides in this thread if you need clarification.

How can I change user account?  My computer automatically loads my skype account, but I want to load an alternative account now.
