    Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16281

    Arrrrrrrrrgggggggghhhhhhhhhhh!

    I clean installed Build 14352 and when I went to open Skype, I got a Preview! Which would be OK, if it had allowed me to sign in with my current Skype ID, rather than reaching back in time and resurrecting a very old ID that I don't use.

    Not only that, but there's no way I can sign out of that old ID and sign in to my newer ID! Oh, yeah, and there's no way I can even get back my old Skype!

    This is the absolute pits!

    Anyone have problems with feedback hub? Cannot post to feedback hub because it keeps asking me to log in with Microsoft account. That is only account I have! When I go to log in, it asks me again to log in. HUMMMMMMM!

    Wynona, as far as I know and have experienced, the Skype Preview App signs in using your Windows sign in MS account. If you create another user account using the MS account associated with the Skype account you want to use, this new user account should sign in to Skype Preview with correct credentials.

    Thanks, Kari! I'll try that.

    Would you believe I've never created a secondary account for my computers? I never had a reason to, since I'm the only one here.

    Ummm, this is a clean install, Robot, which means there's no prior Skype account on it. The only thing available is the stinking Preview. Gonna try what Kari told me.

    Thanks.

    Yep, submit was grayed out. It's like they don't want to hear about my gripes!

    Uninstall the Skype Video Preview and re-install Skype for Desktop.

    I have four user accounts for myself, each in different language. I always install Windows using an English version, then install Finnish, Swedish and German language packs. My main user account is in English but I create three additional user accounts and switch one of them to Finnish, one to Swedish and one to German.

    This way I can choose when signing in to Windows in which of the four languages I want to use Windows, and get screenshots when necessary for Finnish, Swedish and German tech forums. I'm not very active on those forums, though, having about 70 posts in a Finnish tech site, about 120 in a Swedish one and less than 50 in a German one. Compare that to almost 7K here or almost 18K on our sister site Seven Forums (where BTW I celebrate my 7th anniversary this Sunday ).
