The Skype Launcher app allows you to open multiple Skype accounts on the same computer. Whether you have multiple Skype accounts for business and personal use, you can now open all your accounts on one computer at the same time. No longer will you miss a call on one account because you are logged into a different account. Whether you have just two Skype accounts or more, Skype Launcher can handle as many accounts as you can.

This free app is simple to download and set up. Once you have downloaded the app onto a Windows computer, you will be prompted to enter the username and password for your Skype accounts. Skype Launcher automatically recognizes accounts that are already logged in and only logs in to offline accounts. You can change the settings in the app to log you in automatically when you launch the app, or to prompt you for the username and password for each account. The app also checks for updates automatically.

Advanced settings allow you to configure the app in a variety of ways, but the program warns users not to change advanced settings unless you know what you are doing. Changing some of the advanced settings can prevent the app from working properly or at all. Ads are included in the app, but these can be turned off in the advanced settings. You can also export your Skype Launcher account information to a USB so that you can take advantage of Skype's portability.

Skype Launcher, now called Launcher for Skype, is compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and other 64-bit Windows versions. It is compatible with Skype versions 3.X, 4.X, 5, and 6.
