  1. Don't block SKYPE account easily

    I used SKYPE to explain the truth of Falun Dafa to the people of the Public Security Procuratorate and the Court in mainland China, and to prevent the CCP from persecuting good people who believe in God. So I made more calls, and I urge you not to block my account for this. It would just allow the evil CCP to continue to do evil! And harvest the organs of Falun Gong practitioners alive to make huge profits. Such evil continues, I hope you can stand on the side of justice. Cautiously block account. Thank you!

  2. Option to unlink Skype account from Microsoft account

    I have a Skype account linked to my Microsoft account that I don't actually use. I have another Skype account that is well established that is not on the Microsoft account. I would love to be able to unlink the existing Skype account so that the other can be added to my Microsoft account. Also it would be cool just to be able to unlink in general.

  4. Please allow me to change my Skype username

    Allow us to change our Skype username without having to delete our Microsoft account. I'm a transgender man and my Skype username is still my female birth name, I hate it, want it gone, but unless I'm willing to delete my whole Microsoft account then I'm not able to, please fix this for all LGBTQ+ Community members

  6. Unlink skype/microsoft account

    Dear Microsoft, Are you really that stupid that you have to force people to link their skype to their Microsoft accounts. Things were fine before you did that!. Please allow us to unlink the accounts. You're ruining peoples lives. A lot of people are very upset with you about this issue and it needs to be taken care of as a priority. No more stupid updates you broke what wasn't broken and that was the unlink feature. Taking it away was a dumb move on your part. Bring it back or we will revolt against Microsoft or you'll lose millions…

  7. 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.

  8. Skype ID

    Please make it possible for one to change Skype ID. Having to give people default idea isn’t a good idea at all! Especially in a case where someone combined their email and perhaps one email is more official than the other and then Microsoft will have an unofficial name on the Skype account. Not fair at all.

  9. 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. Delete Skype account without deleting Microsoft account

    Have the option of deleting the Skype account from your Microsoft Live profile.
    An MS Chat helper has just written:
    "If you proceed to delete your Skype account, the associated Microsoft account will be closed as well"

    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?
    why is your company's smarter team making such a decision, so it is very unwise for a big company, billions of people around the world use skype, you are free to change to unwise and unwise The decision of the…

  13. 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…

  16. Merging old Skype account (user name) with/into Microsoft accounts (email address).

    I have a Skype account that I created before Microsoft acquired Skype. The account is 'based' on a user name. I recently created a Microsoft account with my email address. Same email address as is in my account settings for the old Skype account. However, Microsoft automatically created a new Skype account for me. Why couldn't I just migrate my existing old Skype account to Microsoft and sync them all up?

  18. Allow Changes to Skype User Names Especially for Trans Individuals

    have to delete my entire Microsoft account and start a new one just so I don't have to tell people my deadname when I want to use Skype. I have multiple subscriptions that I'm going to have to figure out how to transfer over as well as my laptop and possibly my user licenses for Microsoft office. It's beyond frustrating that Microsoft, a global technology company doesn't have a way to do this.

  19. Merge accounts

    Bring back the possibility to merge accounts. I had a skype address. Now I have a MS account and another Skype address linked to it. It would be nice to be capable of merging them. This function is not available now, I will have to delete one of my accounts, lose some contact.
