What is my Skype username? What is my Skype display name?

Your Skype display name is different from your Skype username. You can change your Display Name at any time and it will appear when other Skype users communicate with you.

Your Skype username is the email address used to create your Microsoft account. This is because Microsoft acquired Skype in 2011 and you will need a Microsoft account to log into Skype. Therefore, the only way to change your Skype username or ID is to change your email address and associated Microsoft account.

If you signed up for a Skype account before Microsoft took over Skype, you’re probably using a non-email-based username that cannot be changed unless you create a new account. This means that you will lose your existing contacts.
