Please add permanently delete Skype ID option.
Hi there. Thanks for your feedback. There is a way how to permanently delete your Skype account. Just follow the steps here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/skype/forum/all/how-to-delete-skype-account-permanently/2baea2a4-6283-4589-95f5-22b3f034c878
However, if you will delete your Skype account, you will also delete your Microsoft account and you’ll no longer be able to sign in to other Microsoft consumer products or services such as Outlook.com, Office Online, OneDrive, Xbox Live, or Windows.

I have multiple Skype Names and am unable to delete them (and to keep only 1 that I use). Things are set up in such a way that you cannot delete other Skype Names that are linked to the same email. But this is creating a mess and should be changed. For instance, when someone is searching for my name in the search box, I want there to be only 1 entry and for the other Skype Names to be deleted.

As always, Microsoft staff are extremely dishonest. What the user want is to delete their Skype account without deleting their Microsoft account.
All of the top voted posts in this category are asking for this.
Yet, Microsoft staff claims that Skype already has this feature, and marks this issue as answered.
It is the classic, evil and user hostile Microsoft that we all know.

I do not want to permanently close my Skype account - - I want to delete contacts that I no longer wish to have on my list.
this is the stupidest thing I have ever heard of. Thanks.
P.S. WHY TF are you guys forcing people to merge their accounts? would it really be that hard to say: "i want to opt out of skype but keep MS" or "I want to opt out of MS and keep just Skype?" this is some seriously effed up ****.
P.P.S. who was the freakin genius to stop allowing accounts to be unlinked? I am one of who knows how many people who are stuck with a Skype account merged to an Microsoft account that they did not create, and or is not theirs. Do you guys have any plans to fix this, or are you just going to hang onto my money, and keep giving me the finger forever?
