    Find the Skype tile on the home screen.
    In this example, Skype is pinned to the home screen. The tile has a blue background with the white Skype logotype, which is a white circle with a blue letter "S" in the middle. If the tile has not been pinned to the home screen, then swipe left to find it in the application menu.

    Once the application has been loaded, tap the profile icon.
    The icon is the circle located in the top right-hand corner of the screen. The profile photo is unique to the user, or there will be the outline of head and shoulders if no photo has been added to the profile. Once the icon is tapped, the profile section will be brought up.

  6. 6
    Tap "view account" or the "view account" icon.
    The icon has a blue outline of head and shoulders next to the text. This will open the account on the Skype website. This means that the Internet connection must be available, as the application will redirect the user to the website. Remember then that this means that we will have to use the Internet to go to the web page, so be prepared for that.

    Tap "Set as primary email" if the information entered in the text box above is correct.

  14. 14
    Note that the circle next to "Set as primary email" is empty, and the "Primary email" is chosen.
    The chosen option has a blue dot with a circle around it. This means that the e-mail address below is set as primary now. Tapping "Set as primary email" will exchange the e-mail addresses. The reason for making a new e-mail address primary might be wherefore redirection of all of the Skype messages to a new e-mail address might be required, the old e-mail address has become obsolete, or some reorganization occurs.
