Since it is not possible to use old Skype account with Windows 8 what can we do?


If Skype is already binded some Live account, user must create new Skype account and loose everything information saved on old one. And of course must re-connect all contacts. 


Skype offers 2 easy solutions


1) "Create more users on Windows 8 device and swap between those when need Skype"


2) "Create new account"




Weell, try to change your old email eddress which is closed if your account is binded to Live account.


"Enter your password."


Wups, your Skype password not work, your Live password not work.


Skype support: "user must reset password to access to account information"


"How can reset password? Why old password not work?"


Skype support: "user must reset password to access to account information"


"Old email is closed and old password is not accepted"


Skype support: "create new account"






When it is possible to sign in different account on Windows 8?
