How to open multiple Skype accounts in same computer

It is possible to open multiple skype account in the same computer. The main advantage of running multiple Skype accounts at the same time is that each user can make and receive skype calls at same time.

It is very simple to login into skype by multiple users if they have their own computer and own phone. But it is possible to login into skype by multiple users at the same from the same computer. Let us say that there are two users 'user1' and 'user2' in skype who want to login into skype from same computer. Let us say they have their own USB phones, their own handsets (user1_handset and user2_handset) connected to the PC. The procedure is given below:

  • Create seperate user accounts in Windows 7 for the two users. Let us say 'user1' and 'user2'.

  • Now configure each skype account for each user account.
    1. Login onto user1 account. Start Skype and login into 'user1' account in skype. Configure the skype account it to use user1_handset.
    2. Repeat the above procedure but for user2, 'user2' of skype and user2_handset.

    Remember that only one user account is visible in Windows monitor at a time. But since both the user accounts are running in windows and they are running separate skype accounts, both of them can make calls or receive calls from their USB phones. You can even run a number of user accounts in skype at a time like this.
