Your Skype account is the same as your Microsoft account. If you close it, you'll no longer be able to sign in to other Microsoft products or services such as Outlook.com, Office Online, OneDrive, Xbox Live, or Windows. Before you close your Skype account, let's make sure you aren't leaving anything important behind:
When you close your Skype account, we wait 30 days before permanently deleting it. During this waiting period, your account is marked for closure, but still exists.
Sign in to your account within 30 days of closing it. We'll cancel the closure, and everything will be just as you left it. If it's been longer than 30-days, we can't retrieve an account that has been deleted.
If it's been longer than 30-days, we can't retrieve an account that has been deleted.
