At the sign-up stage, Skype allows you to use your email address or your phone number. If you sign in with your phone number or email address instead of your Skype name, what you have is a Microsoft account, not a Skype name.






Why Can’t I Change My Skype Name?

Your Skype username is the name of your account, which generally starts with live(username), and this cannot be changed as it’s generated based on the email you use.

The only option you have is to change your account’s display name and other details, but not your Skype name.

However, you could create a new Microsoft account to use on Skype, though this means forgoing all your contacts as it won’t sync or move your contacts and conversation history on the old Skype account.

If you choose to go that way, create an email account that you’d like to use as your Skype username, and always sign in with the login credentials of the account you want to use.

You can set up multiple accounts, but the challenge lies in ensuring you sign in correctly for each and you manage each individual account.

How To Change The Skype Display Name

If you still want to use the same Skype account, instead of creating a new one just to get the username you want, you can change your display name instead.

Skype For Business

Microsoft Teams is now Microsoft’s professional online meeting solution instead of Skype for Business Online. It’s an integrated app that combines video conferencing, instant messaging, calling, and document collaboration.

If you’re using Skype for Business, you can’t change your username (Skype name) or your display name. This is because the user accounts are already created for you by your employer, who assigns every employee an email address for work, and a name.

To change your Skype for Business name or ID, you have to contact your boss or the relevant person in your IT department.
