    It is an ID that starts with this: live:.cid. What is this ID? What is this account? It is so difficult to use. Why do we use Skype for the convenience of work? Why do you change them into inconvenient skype? Why?
    The previous registration rules have been used for many years. Why can you even modify the registration rules?

  3. Unlinking Skype from Microsoft or but transferring to another Microsoft account

    Is it technically impossible to unlink Skype account form Microsoft account, or ist it just an unwillingess of Microsft to do that. Many of us have the same issue and my opinion is that Microsoft is dooing nothing.

  5. Change or Reset Skype Name

    So you guys know people get married, divorce, change their names, interests lose relevance, etc. right?

    For those of us who have been on Skype since before the GUID was used for your Skype name we are stuck with whatever that name we set was, not only isn't that my name anymore but as a trans woman it's really important to me not to be running into my old name constantly. Unfortunately, you can't let me rename it, nor can you reset it so I get a generic GUID like you currently use. And since I can't close my Skype…

  6. Transferring the old Skype login to another Microsoft account.

    Why is the problem of transferring the old Skype login to another Microsoft account or merging two Microsoft accounts with the choice of the required Skype login still not resolved? Without any of these features, many users experience problems using the app!
    Please return this opportunity to the user, do not complicate their life!
    If this task is not feasible, then at least solve the problem with the ability to log in under a different login to the Skype application on Windows Phone 10 mobile device!
    Thank you for understanding!

  8. Unlink skype accounts from old email addresses

    My skype account is linked to my husbands microsoft account and if he changes his password I am locked out of Skype and visa-versa. Not sure how this has happened but it appears that it is not straightforward to fix. We need to be able to unlink skype accounts from old email addresses easily in the user profile for skype.

  11. Delink skype and microsoft account

    Forcing people to (1) have a new Skype account randomly generated by your AI if they accidentally click a link or try to open their own Skype accounts from a new device, and then (2) agree to cancel their outlook accounts and all associated services to include their emails and real Skype accounts as punishment for wanting to get rid of the 'bogus' account. This is criminal behavior akin to technological blackmail. Who at Microsoft thought this was a good idea? It's a terrible idea and now there is a junk Skype account with my name of it that I…

  14. Real-name/ ID registration

    I've been bugging by lots of fake accounts, some of them even sent out threats but without real-name/ID registration it is impossible to locate these people. I suggest to set all accounts can only be bound to a real ID number so to stop skype becoming a criminal tool.
    Once we report such account, we hope skype team will have content reviewer to review the conversation and work with local police department to get those who are sitting behind the screens and kept doing illegal things.

  18. Ability to change "Skype Name" without deleting e-mail account.

    Ability to change Skype Name if it so happens to be now attached to my professional e-mail. Prior to Microsoft buying Skype, I had a unprofessional skype name which at the time during my youth of late teens to early 20s was appropriate but currently is not professional and it's attached to my professional e-mail.

  19. Change Skype ID

    Allow users to change their Skype IDs. I made my account in middle school, 10+ years ago, and now want to change it to something professional, but am unable to do it. Very frustrating.
