Multi Skype Launcher
Sometimes, for business reasons, the same person creates two different Skype accounts to use depending on the circumstances. Too bad, however, that the Skype desktop client does not allow you to log in with two different identities or to start two instances of the program at the same time. The free program Multi Skype Launcher solves this problem by allowing each user to start multiple Skype sessions at the same time using different login credentials. The software remembers the profiles created, allowing you to quickly start all the Skype sessions you want with your favorite identities. Download from here.
