Help signing on old account Skype on Windows 8

Years ago, my sister did a Skype account without having a microsoft account. She had all her chat logs, contacts, and the icons on this account. When she got a new laptop with windows 8, (Dell Inspiron 15 3000), she had to sign in with a windows account. She can't connect to Skype with her SKYPE account. How can connect there? I tried to look on the Skype Web site for answers, but they're running around.

Install Skype desktop vesion on this laptop. In the desktop version, it is possible to connect with any Skype account.

  • I've lost my admin account on my windows 8 laptop please help

    I went back to my old laptop because my other broke. When I come back, it seems that my old account of administration has disappeared. Please help me. I can't do anything without an administrator account. All users have been replaced by normal ones I think.

    Hello Greyyson,

    Thanks for posting your question on the Forum of the Microsoft community.

    You are unable to do anything because you are not signed in with an administrative account, so I you suggest to activate the default Administrator account and then try to create a new administrator account.

    Try the following steps to activate default Administrator and check if it helps.

    • Press Windows + R to open the Run dialog box, type lusrmgr.msc and click/click on OK.
    • In the left pane, click on/tap on the users folder, and then in the pane, double-click on/tap on administrator. (see sceenshot below)

    • Do step 4 or 5 below what you would want to do. (see sceenshot below)

    • To activate the account administrator built-in in Windows 8

      • Uncheck account is disabled , click/click on OKand proceed to step 6 below. (see screenshot below step 3)
    • To disable the built-in in Windows 8 Administrator account
      • Check the account is disabled , click/click on OKand proceed to step 6 below. (see screenshot below step 3)
    • Close local users and groups window.
    • The built-in administrator will now be available to select to connect to.

     

    More information

    You can also consult the suggestion provided in the following link and check if it helps.

    Enable and disable the built-in Administrator account

    Hope it would help. If problem persists always post back with the current state of your computer and the result of the proposed suggestion, we will be happy to help you.

  • I was using my computer as a default administrator, I did another administrator account but I lost my old account that has gots my data all pls help me as soon as possible

    I was using my computer as a default administrator, I did another administrator account but I lost my old account that has gots my data all pls help me as soon as possible

    The system hides the built-in Administrator account on Windows XP Home Edition when you create a second administrator account and she is only available for use by visiting Mode safe.  You can copy the profile of the account administrator part of your new account.

    Follow the instructions here: to copy a user profile

    Note that you can not copy a profile to or from the account that you are currently connected, if you want to copy the user profile to user B, you must be connected with the C & C user the user must have administrator privileges.

  • How can I get around having to sign into my account (Windows Vista 7) during startup as I forgat my password?

    How can I get around having to sign into my account (Windows Vista 7) during startup as I forgat my password?

    Hello Bob Zientak,.

    If a password is required to log on your system, then you won't be able to cirumvent it. Unfortunately the users of this forum are also not allowed to suggest ways to help you bypass (hack) the password (3668Microsoft Terms and Conditions).

    Remember passwords are case sensitive so maybe that you type a password in the case of bad? Did you create a password recovery disk when you created your password first? If Yes, then you must insert the password recovery disk to allow you to change the current password. If you did not create a password recovery disk then the next and more radical, opion is to re - install Windows.

    This forum post is my own opinion and does not necessarily reflect the opinion or the opinion of Microsoft, its employees or other MVPS.

  • How to pass all Windows messages to my address to a new e-mail address so I can close the old account?

    1. We have established a new domain and an email account for our Church and need to transmit emails arriving at our old account/email address to our new e-mail address/account.  Searched the help files but no luck.
    2. We want to transfer contacts from the old email account to our new account.  Know that we can send a blast of e-mail contacts to inform them about our new address but there are always 10% and there are those who we wouldn't be in our list of Contacts who will not get the word about the change of address, so we would like to transmit the emails that arrive automatically to the following month until that we close the old account.  Is it possible or we have to recreate our Contacts list in our new account as soon as we receive emails?

    Windows Mail can't do that if you create a message rule but WinMail must be open for the rule to work. The best advice I can offer is to ask your former e-mail server if they will send messages to you.

    Is it possible to add or use my old account e-mail (SMTP format) on a Windows 7 computer. I have limited knowledge, so I can not have described the format of the account properly, but hope that someone will know what I mean. Currently I have an outlook e-mail account, but would like to be able to access my old account since I've had it for many years and have so many contacts. I also use it for information of connection on the accounts I have used for a long time. Thanks for any help

  • Windows 8 Microsoft help - documents and applications account

    Recently, I bought a new windows computer with windows 8. When you set up this computer I wrote accidentally my wrong email as I just create a new email. So I can't get all the apps or download things through the windows. Although I created another account with the right details, but there is nothing of my many important documents or apps. If I delete my account with the correct details and change the incorrect one to the correct, I'll lose my job and downloaded applications? I can not really afford for them to get lost!

    Hello

    Welcome to the Microsoft community.

    You can see the section 'to copy files to the new user profile' in the following link for copy files to the appropriate user account before deleting the old.

    Hello

    I see that you have an adobe account with the same email with forums, however, I don't see no subscription under this account.

    If you can't change the email during indexing, see the steps below:

    The OOBE and rename it OOBE.old and then try to connect with the correct ID:

    Location: -.

    Windows C: \ directory users\ user account-App data-local-adobe \oobe

    MAC: Go / go to the folder / Application support / Adobe / oobe

    If nothing helps, please contact adobe support:

  • I lost most of my music from itunes because of a terrible infection (my own stupidity because I didn't have a backup).  I had an old account to my work, so I contacted support. They said they couldn't help. Someone has an idea? I paid for it.

    My music has been on a computer at work, so I can't access the account.  I talked to the media and they a great buy from this old account but now they say they are unable to move the rest.  That is not meant for me, but they can't do it. I don't remember having a Apple ID at this point here, I just use my email address but it is a private estate, so I can't sign this account more.  All hope is lost?

    If you do not have to keep a backup copy, and then they are gone.

  • Transfer gamer tag to the new Xbox, lost account and signed at old gamer tag shows up. Where is my new gamer tag and saved game history and avatar?

    I initially started with an older Xbox360 and played for a few years before the xbox has requested a change of tag gamer for free on my Xbox. So I changed my gamertag and everything was going well until my Xbox 360 broke and forced me to buy a new xbox360 slim. So I bought the hard drive transfer cable and transfer my game data and now it asks me to enter the password and email with this account and when I do it says that it does not match. When I log on my computer it shows my old gamer tag not my other or one of my friends or recorded the history of the game. When the Xbox support helped me download my account on Xbox it came with my old new. I only got an email all my life, so I know that this is the correct e-mail. How can I get the correct information for my new gamer tag so I can access my account on my new Xbox and play without having to create a new and lose all my past history, gamer points and their friends?
