Login name change

Is there a way to change my login name, i.e. the name I am entering when logging in Skype? Obviously, I can always create a new login and re-invite friends, but that is quite a messy solution. Any tips, folks?

 

Any help will be much appreciated.

Hello,

I'm sorry, your username can't be changed for your existing account. You can create a new account or you can change your Forum name for your present account at any time.

I recommend that you always run the latest Skype version: Windows & Mac

Hi Norman,

 

Is there any way that my login name is not remembered by SKYPE ? I have un-installed skype & installed again..but it still remembers my screen/login name. Other messengers have an option to un-check the box whcih says to remember the USER id.

Hello,

Your log in name box should be blank until you start to type it in.

Try quitting Skype, wait for 5 minutes and then sign back in.

You can also try powering down your machine/rebooting and doing a complete clean reinstall of the Skype software ( not just uninstall/reinstall).
