I'm not quite sure where I should place this so I thought this would be a proper place. But the subject says it all. How do I find my skype name if I have a microsoft account. I know it says live:accountnamehere but I need to log in via web browser and I need my Skype ID. DANKE!

If you have Microsoft account, then your login ID is the email address that you have used to create this account (e.g. or similar). Your given Skype name (e.g. live:eggplantcomputers) can't be used as login ID, but your friends can search for you using this name.

Well is there anyway to find a login ID I can use? Because I need it in a browser and I can't enter my [Removed for privacy] thing.

Have you tried with the email address?
