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

É impossível deletar uma conta Skype, o que é horrível ! As vezes acontecem coisas que nos levam a querer nos desfazer de uma conta, e pela lógica atual ficamos presos a algo indesejado. Copiem o modelo de exclusão de contas do Telegram e eu visitarei usar o Skype novamente.
We hear you. We love Skype version 7 too. We’re working to build the Skype experience you’ve come to depend on for so long on today’s platforms for today’s user. It would be impossible to bring back the full catalog of features available in previous versions of Skype all at once, our engineering systems just don’t work that way. We are committed to evolving the current Skype experience to match your needs over time. As we release new Skype features, we’ll update this site. You can also follow @Skype and @SkypeInsider on Twitter for the latest news too.
Thank you all for your feedback.
