CLARIFY in big letters: Deleting microsoft account also deletes skype account
Add and MAKE PROMINENT that, because Microsoft and Skype accounts are now linked, you must delete the Microsoft account in order to permanently delete the Skype account.
Also, add to instructions/clarification that you should identify all details of account information to be sure you are using or deleting the correct account. This includes Display Name, Login Name and Login Alias. You don’t know for sure until you see it all together. Promise.
It has taken 6 hours of my Saturday to understand and finalize actions related to this process.
I hate Microsoft for creating this mess in the first place.
