    I want to be able to send SMS texts from my surface instead of picking up my phone. But if I use the number Skype gives me, the person I'm sending to doesn't know who's sending. I know it can be done I just can't figure how.

    You can also set up call forwarding to your Skype Number from any phone that has the feature. Just set up call forwarding on your phone as you would normally do and enter your Skype Number as the phone number. https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA3...a-skype-number

    If I do that and send SMS messages via Skype will the recipient see the SMS come from my mobile?

    I don't think it's possible Hink. Laura's method will forward your mobiles calls to Skype but not your texts (it's call forwarding not text forwarding)

    I really wish Microsoft could make this a thing though, I would uninstall whatsapp instantly!

    If they really want people in their ecosystem give us what we want. Don't make us I use other apps when they can do it seemingly easily.

    Yes, it is possible. I have it configured like this for !many years now. Anytime I call out from Skype it shows my mobile number. Just google, how do I use my mobile number to send SMS. I don't know how to add links here, sorry :(

    This may be the directions but I haven't tested yet.

    The directions in this link don't do what I want. Don't bother. If anyone finds the right link, please post.
