I've been trying to link my Microsoft + Skype accounts (Got two skype logins), but I cannot figure out how to do this. I've searched online (Skype support) but I can't get the options they say I should get.

How can I merge my Skype login + Microsoft Skype login?

Have you tried whats suggested https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA12060/how-do-i-link-my-skype-and-microsoft-accounts Desktop instructions https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA12081/how-do-i-sign-in-to-skype-for-windows-desktop-with-my-microsoft-account

Also, as it mentions,
Important: You can only link one Skype account with one Microsoft account. So if you have two skype accounts you will need to create a different MS account as well.

Note: make sure you have the latest Skype installed, some features /options are not available in earlier editions.

The wonderful Waunuitech strikes again!

Turns out I had an old unused skype account linked to it.

Unlinked, signed in and now I got the option to link an existing account and then merge it, which I did.

Thanks very much!
