Answer

You cannot change your Skype Name.

You can create a new Microsoft account to use on Skype however, you will not be able to access your contacts and conversation history on your old Skype account.

At all times, please ensure you are signed-in with the credentials of the account you wish to use.

Whilst we allow multiple accounts to be setup, you will need manage each individual account and ensure you are signed-in correctly.

Hi Verbahl,

Question: So the ID I chose 10 or so years ago wont be shown outside of my login?

If you created an account with a Skype Name, it will still show up on your contacts' end when they view your profile along with your display name.

Question: And the name I entered after following your link would be shown to the outside world instead?

The steps will lead you in changing your display name. Your display name is the full name on your profile. And it will always be shown to your contacts.

Let me know if you have further questions.
