Skype problem

Likes # 0

I have given up on trying to fix a problem with Skype - keeps going round in circles. The problem: I have 2 skype names - a redundant one (kimig1, which I have not used for years) and the one I now use regularly (kimpavey, which holds my credit and all my contacts) Skype will only allow me to access the "old" name. The "kimpavey" account shows in My Account, and I eventually managed to retrieve my credit, but I am totally unable to access the kimpavey account withing Skype itself. Would like to have my credit back, if possible, but ESSENTIAL that I use this account, because it has all my precious contacts. Please can anyone help?

Odd -I have several Skype accts for different members of the family on the same email address. What happens when you try to log in? Message?

I wish I had known that it was as simple as that - thanks for the logout tip. Now, how do I get rid of the unwanted account without shaking everything else out, please?
