Signing in with two or more skype Account:
Most of the Skype users have multiple ID’s i.e for work , for personal use or for some business purposes etc. Sometime they wanted to be Online on all accounts at the same time on a single device.
Skype Officially don’t provide an obvious way to login with multiple accounts on a same device. It allows you to login through a single account at once. Similarly , Mobile Applications at different platforms like Andriod , IOS or windows platform has also some restrictions of doing this. You have to logout first, and the sign in with a new account. This is quite laborious and not manageable. But you sign in with or more account at once on system with a simple trick.
Now, I’m going to show you the simple way to logged in through your multiple accounts on a same system, at the same time.
There are basically two ways of doing it.
- Using Website
- Using Desktop Application
1. Through WEB:
It’s quite simple through using web version. You can use web version by simply visiting http://web.skype.com . You have no need to install desktop application on your system. Web version also supports audio and video chats on all platforms i.e Window, Mac. What you have to do is, simply visit web.skype.com and login through your primary account, let say “PERSONAL” account.
Now, press CTRL+Shift+N (or simply open incognito window). In incognito window you can open another web.skype.com and logged in through secondary account say “WORK” account. Incognito window will be look like as shown
By open multiple incognito windows you can logged in to multiple accounts at once without installing any skype application. This is for the web version. Now we move towards the other way.
2. Using Skype Desktop Application:
The other way is using desktop application, If you have skype application installed on you system, simply launch it.
If you haven’t simply go to https://www.skype.com/en/download-skype/skype-for-computer/ download the application, and install it.
while installing it is preferred that you choose C:\ directory, After successful installation, simply launch it.
Sign in with you Primary Account let say “Personal”.
Now, for opening new skype window, you simply press WINDOW KEY + R to open run window or alternatively type “run” in the search option of the window, through both ways you’ll get the run window.
If you are using window of version 64 bit, then you copy and paste the following command in the Run window Box as shown , then press “ENTER” Key from Keyboard or simply Tap Ok.
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe”/secondary
If you are using window version of 32 bit, then you copy and paste the following command in Run window Box and Press “ENTER” key from keyboard or Tap OK
By repeating this process , you can logged in through multiple accounts through windows as many time you want.
