Bring back USERNAMES
Allow us to change Skype username!
My Win10 account is linked to foreign(not mine - somebody else profile) Skype account only because I have never used Skype in the past 10 years.
I have opened the case and nobody from microsfot nor Skype could help me, it cannot be unlinked.
So where are updates on this? Anyone working on the issue, no? Isn't it obvious that live:cid9037gbre0234 looks crazy and unprofessional on business cards? Is this all on purpose so that people stop using Skype?
I want to edit my username so bad and I really love this app and I just want to be able to change my username.
I totally 100% agree on this comment!
I think it would be best convenient for your customers that you allow them to either change their skype name or migrate their skype account. I just notcied that when I try to log into skype on my laptop it has a totally different name than the one on my mobile phone. which makes me think now I have to manage two different accounts just to manage skype online and on my mobile phone.
TWO THUMBS DOWN!!!
I can't believe we still can't change our Skype Name. This is laughably pathetic. Wow.

Please, fix the issue of changing Skype Username or Skype Name, soon. People search their friends with the same username that they have on other social media platforms. I had to make three accounts to get the Skype name of my will but I couldn't get. Sigh...

Not being able to change my "Skype Name" (SN) affects alternate sign-in alias' when it comes to signing into MS. I don't mind having the two options (email or SN) because we all use email for almost everything, but not being able to change my SN to something more suitable or in my case accurate is a bit of a let down. I changed my entire legal name and my SN is my entire former legal name. It is incredibly disappointing. I very much enjoy my MS accounts and appreciate all the safety features in place to protect our privacy, but this specific feature at the moment is not protecting my privacy. I would not want to at all have to delete my entire MS account and lose years worth of information over this one feature. I'm not the most active user of Skype, but I do keep in it in case of personal or professional reasons. I'd appreciate it if you let us change it for our own personal reasons or provide an extra step to confirm identity before allowing us to do so, but to deny us that option altogether is something I think could could be improved. I'd sure as **** appreciate it. Thank you for hearing us all out; myself included. I hope to see the changes in the near future.

How does one change their skype name???
It would be great if we could change our Skype name.
My name is a bunch of random letters and numbers and would like my name as the Skype name.
Personal skype username like it used to be
I want to use my Skype name to online teaching.Please can I have a skype ID.
Please activate again the possibility to change the Skype Name.
I don't want randomly assigned live:.cid-----------------

delete this skype in my name
Let the users change their Skype name or disconnect their Skype from Microsoft account.
David: "Hi, can we talk in Skype? It is really convenient nowadays, I can find you and talk at home. I remember your username is Bob123 right?"
Bob: "Nope, now my Skype username is cid.1234329432he24j6"
David: "...what? c...ci what?"
I really want this.
my Microsoft account is valuable and lots of services and Windows license is connected to it but I have multiple Email alias in my Microsoft account and each one has a Skype account connected to them (my own fault) and I want to delete the rest and only keep the active and main one but I can't.
Have a feature allowing me to change my live name to correct a mistake.
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.
