How can I remove my Skype Name from the sign-in screen in Skype for Linux?
When you sign in to Skype, your Skype Name is added to the drop-down list on the sign-in screen.
To remove your Skype Name from the sign-in screen:
- Quit Skype.
- Go to /home/YOURLINUXUSERNAME/.Skype
where YOURLINUXUSERNAME needs to be replaced with your Linux user account name.
- In the .Skype folder, delete the folder with your Skype Name.
If you can’t find the .Skype folder in your home folder, press the Ctrl+H key combination on your keyboard to make sure you can see the hidden files and folders.
When you restart Skype, your Skype Name will no longer be displayed.
