    By stealth, MS obliged me to create a 2nd Skype account (without knowing that was what was happening!). For a couple of years I wondered what had gone wrong. I had lost my addressee list, my profile picture (replaced by a mirror-image "LG" logo, who knows why). It was not till I changed my credit card for payment in 2019 that I learned I had TWO Skype accounts, because I had only updated the credit card for ONE. Now I have gone through a tortuous process of transferring the balance from the unwanted account to the one that holds my contacts and username. But I find that Skype still tries to log in my unwanted account. Even after deleting ALL cookies etc, I can log in once to my preferred account; and then on logging out, the 'snail trails' still log me back in to the unwanted account. How can I get rid of this without DELETING both accounts, along with my MS account!! I do not wish to delete my MS account YET, although I am increasingly tempted to do so!
