Hi, I would want to change  my skype display name because everyone else has a very cool name and my name is the most boring. So could someone tell me how to change it, please?????....

Unfortunately, it is not possible within modern version of Skype.


You can install Skype desktop client and change your display name.


In the menubar, Click View >> Profile >> Click your name >> Type the display name >> Enter.

Why are a lot of things not supported yet on the modern version of skype? Skype is long enough to have these issues solved.
