  2. Change Skype Name

    I have a horrible Skype name live:.cid.a764c76ce9eb3ee2 and all the support just says it can't be changed. Obviously Microsoft is not listening because I see the same complaint everywhere. It is sad that our company is going to leave the Skype service for a competitor for a very simple issue but we can't give our skype name over the phone with a ****** name like that. It sure feels like the skype team is not listening.

  3. Add ability to change skype name, delete skype account

    Forcing skype accounts on existing microsoft accounts without the option to change the skype name, delete/unlink the skype account, or link an already existing skype account to the user's microsoft account is asinine. Please update these features immediately, users should not have to delete their entire pre-existing microsoft account to work around these issues.

  5. 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…

  6. Change Skype Name and Delete Account without Deleting Microsoft Account

    My account was hacked a couple of years ago and someone set my 'Skype Name' as their own name. We should be allowed to change this.

    I have this hacked account and two other accounts attached to my Microsoft account, now I can't delete them without deleting my entire e-mail account. I didn't consent to this link. We should be able to delete Skype accounts without deleting Microsoft ones!

  8. Change Skype Name Option

    Would be an absolute amazing update for Skype if they allowed users to manually change their Skype Name in Settings. It would make the platform a lot more personalised as all the other functions of Skype is phenomenal. I absolutely love the product and prefer the messaging aspect compared to other social media platforms.

    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?

  10. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. Requesting the ability to change Skype usernames and the ability to unlink accounts without affecting current Microsoft accounts connected

    Usernames should not cause confusion for utilizing either Skype or Microsoft accounts. Please make it possible to change the Skype Username to the email associated with the Microsoft account. This would be for a select number of cases where the username NEEDS to be changed as a result of the Skype and Microsoft merger. In the future it would be great if there was the ability to change Skype usernames and the ability to unlink accounts without affecting the current Microsoft accounts connected to it.

  17. 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?
