Remove username suggest function in Skype 4.2, Windows Vista?

I'm looking for a way to clear the login name history on my Skype (Windows 7).

I don't know where it is hidden. Even tried un-installing all Skype and re-installing again but still it is showing the previous history of names logged in.

How do I delete these from the suggested drop-down login?

  • Click the Start menu
  • Click Run (or just press WinKey+R)
  • Type %AppData%/Skype
  • Press Enter on your keyboard
  • In the folder that appears, look for a folder named with the user you want to get rid of
  • Delete that folder.

That should clear the username from your login field.

  • Apparently it does not clear the login names (as mentioned by anonymous user).
