Bring back USERNAMES
Allow us to change Skype username!
Thank you all who voted for this request! We have recently made changes which should allow you to see your Username. On Skype 8 You can see it in Settings > Account & Profile under Skype Name field.
In case you created an account using email or phone number you will see your username as live:emailid or live:uniqueidentifier.
No exact release date is available but we are working on adding support to allow users to customize their user name. I’ll keep you posted as we move closer to release
Still working on it? -_-
Since December 2018 working on it?
Please , do it as soon as possible ,
for your information..... such thing made many people not to sign up for Skype , no one want to share his profile as live:uniqueidentifier. in 2020 !!!
yet many people dont even know how to share their account link with respectful way.
the newest and the oldest platforms and services allows us to do such thing ,
Microsoft or Skype , needs to take this as a series topic and an emergency issue
Thank you for listening and awaiting for your fast an accurate actions.
Apruebo esta suberencia. Queremos suprimir el "live:" queremos crear nuestro username.
I look forward to when Microsoft implements this feature. It is very disappointing that so far this has not been done. So long.
Change username should be included in the skype
I would like to change the order in which my name is displayed. Currently it is last name first. I would like first name first. Thank you!
Over a year has passed and nothing has changed.
lorsqu'il s'agit de partager un document vidéo avec du son par exemple, mon interlocuteur voit la vidéo mais il n'entend pas le son de la vidéo.
pouvez-vous développer cette fonctionnalité ?
It's very important for some people the possibility to change username / ID
I set my username a decade ago and now it's hardly a professional look. Skype keeps suggesting changing the Display Name, but that's not useful at all since the username appears everywhere as well, maybe more! Please either let us change usernames (even once or twice is fine, so it's our names and not silly nicknames) or make it completely hidden so only display names or emails appear in all instances.
Hope you hear your good old users and help us out.

Need to change my skype name..
Ability to change Skype Name associated with the account. For example, my account was created when I was younger and I selected a ridiculous name... I utilize my current account for far too many other Microsoft products from 365 to Xbox... I would love to be able to change the Skype Name. It's certainly not work appropriate at the moment.
hi again commented
Hello, this is the commenter below again. I deleted my profile on "uservoice.com", which told me that my posts would be marked as "anonymous" and remove my unsupported ideas. Instead, it named me as "[Deleted User]", and it also seems to have removed my vote on this idea. Obviously, I will be looking to delete my Microsoft Account and uninstall Windows as soon as possible, as I do not trust Microsoft with anything, anymore.

I just want to delete my Skype account, without losing the ability to:
* Access files in OneDrive
* Recovering my password from countless services
As a note, deleting my Microsoft Account would also lose me:
* Potential software licenses linked to my account
* Large amounts of E-mail history
* Reminders and events saved in my calendar
and many other things. There is no reason I should have to give all this up only to delete the information linked to my Skype account.
