Im anew account from skype


Installation
Download Skype from the Skype website (see Resources), choosing to "Install" and "Run" the program when prompted by your PC.
Double-click the Skype icon on your desktop to open Skype. A small window, titled "Welcome to Skype" will pop up, prompting you to type in your Skype name and password--if you don't have one, click on the option under the "Skype Name" input form titled "Don't Have a Skype Name?"
Input your details into the "Create a New Skype Account" window that pops up. It asks for your full name and email, and you will have to create a Skype name and password. Click "I Agree-Create Account" once you are done and have perused the Skype license agreement. The Skype interface will come up, from where you can make calls and video chat--you will be logged in under the Skype name you just created.

Using Skype
Find contacts--friends or family also on Skype--by clicking on the upper left-hand menu item in the Skype interface named "Contacts." Click on "New Contact" and input your friend's full name, email or Skype name and click "Find." Alternatively, click "Import Contacts" from the "Contacts" menu to import contacts from a number of various programs, such as existing Facebook, Hotmail and AOL accounts.
Contact another Skype user on their computer by clicking on his name in the "Contacts" panel on the left side of the Skype interface. This will bring up a number of options in the right-hand panel of the Skype interface. Click on the green button that says "Call" to make a voice call to this person's Skype account. Click on the green button that says "Video Call" to make a video call to this person's Skype account. Type an instant message into the text box at the bottom of the Skype interface to start an IM conversation with this person.
Call a land line or cell phone from Skype by clicking on the "Call Phones" button on the bottom left of the left-side panel of the Skype interface. This will bring up a large number pad in the right-hand panel of the interface, but you need Skype Credit in order to call.
Click on the "Buy Skype Credit" in the small box on the far right of the right-hand Skype interface panel. This takes you to a secure page. Follow the prompts to enter your billing address and credit card number, and your Skype Credit will be loaded. Go back to the "Call Phones" page and enter the phone number you wish to call, then press the large green button that says "Call."

I forgot my skype password


You can still reset it. Open the Skype, enter your username, click "Forgot you password?", (you can do even if you don't enter the username, but it's better since you'll be taken to your personal page, check the url, you'll be be able to see your username).

another windows will open up on the Browser, there, you'll see box "Enter your email address", type in your email address and click "submit"

You'll receive a temporary password on your email. Use the code to login and change the password after you are logged in. Note: to change the password, you'll need the temporary password, so don't delete the email, better note it down and change it once you are logged in.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I can't log on skype, it says your skype name and password were not recognised.


Maybe your Skype ID and password does not match. Either you entered the Skype ID or the password incorrectly. If you are not sure of your Skype name & password, try registering a new account instead. This time, better keep the Skype name and password, don't ever forget it. =)

How does skype change my password without my permission


With a username and an e-mail address, you can send a request for a new password to Skype.
To receive the password, make sure your SPAM settings are right.

Also make sure the e-mail address you signed up with, is still in use.

Though if you don’t remember your username and e-mail address anymore, below are listed some suggestion to help you to remember and/or retrieve them.

1) Username / e-mail address: Enter Skype in browser or Explorer address bar. Double click user folder, double click, or open (with Notepad), profile 256 or 4096. Email address and user name should be there.

2) Username: do a Skype search for your own username and fill in as much as possible
details. Sometimes you have to do more search options then one.

3) Username: send one of your contacts of whom you also know an e-mail address, a request
to look for your username in his/her contact list.

4) Password: in case you´re using the Firefox browser and have ticked "save passwords" in
"preferences" ... it´s there.

5) When all this isn’t of any help, there is a final solution: if you have a paid service with
Skype, Skype Staff can retrieve your user name / e-mail address but needs billing details
like part of your Credit card number, PayPal account info you need to send a support request from here http://support.skype.com/?_a=tickets&_m=submit
