Automatically linking accounts and then not allowing to unlink is not only a huge mess, I believe it is also illegal! I want my account unlinked since it got merged with the wrong account - I NEVER WANTED THOSE ACCOUNTS LINKED IN THE FIRST PLACE.
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

Unbelievable mess. If you merged accounts without your knowledge or without wanting you are forced to delete the whole Microsoft account... Which may include Windows, OneDrive and what not. I even believe this is against the law, it's so ridiculous...
