What happened to Skype ID?

Hello,

Previously I created a Skype account using an ID e.g. "MySkypeID" and then added an email address. When I login I use my ID and password.

I need a new account with a different Skype ID but when I create an account I need to use either a mobile phone or email address. But how do I create an ID?

With the desk top app on my older account it displays MySkypeID top left after the skype logo and then underneath my birth name after my profile picture.

With the desk top app on my new account it displays my mobile number top left after the skype logo and then underneath my birth name after my profile picture.

... a bit confused?

In Account Settings:

(Old Account)

Skype name: MySkypeID

Microsoft Account: Connect a Microsoft account for a better Skype experience

(New Account)

Microsoft account Linked


I don't have a microsoft account.
