Steps to merge your Skype account and Microsoft accounts on Windows 10

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you use multiple passwords for Microsoft’s services on Windows 10? If you have, believe me that you are not the only one. In reality, Windows 10 has long allowed to use only one password for all Microsoft’s services including Office, Skype, Xbox and more, eliminating the need to  keep track of multiple logins.


In this guide, we will run you through the steps to merge your Skype and Microsoft accounts. The below-mentioned guide aims to help you better manage your account, so make sure that you follow along.

Steps to merge your Skype and Microsoft accounts on Windows 10

Step one: First off, you need to head to here. If you are now logged in with your Microsoft account, make sure that you have logged out

Step two: Once you are done, log back in using your Skype account. Once you are done, you may be asked to update your account using a backup email address for account recovery

Step three: Next up, Microsoft will inform that your Skye account is now a Microsoft account and you can use it to sign in to any Microsoft app or service with only one password. If you want to use the current email address, you simply need to click the Next button. You can of course add a new email address if necessary

Step four: Note that if you don’t have a Microsoft account, you will be prompted to verify your backup email address. After that, Microsoft will update your Skype account to a Microsoft account, meaning that you can use your Skype account as a Microsoft account

Step five: If you already have a Microsoft account, all you need to do is to enter your Microsoft account details. Once you are done, you will be asked to merge both Skype and Microsoft accounts into one account with one password.

That’s it! This comes in handy, as it removes the need to sign in with multiple passwords. If you are now using Windows 10, make sure that you use one password for all Microsoft’s services.
