Changing your Skype avatar on Windows 10

Wednesday, December 16, 2015
So, I ran Skype on Windows 10 today. And, for some reason it is showing a really old avatar, from about eight years ago. I want to change it.

Sadly, I can't find a way to change my Skype avatar using the Skype application on Windows 10. The only way I've found to change it is to use the Skype for Web website, which is currently in beta.

  1. Log into
  2. Click on your avatar at the top left.
  3. Click on the avatar picture at the center of the screen.

All done.

As far as Skype itself...? Uh.. I'll stick with Pidgin, thanks.
