Skype is a free VoIP messaging service that is developed by Microsoft Skype division. Skype also offers a free instant messaging client by which we can connect with the people from all over world who are using Skype. The instant messaging client provides an easy to signup feature to connect with our colleagues. But the one and only problem with Skype instant messaging client is that, we can only use single Skype account at a same time, which means in case if you have multiple Skype accounts for friends and family then you have to sign out and sign in again in order to switch accounts. After some internet research I got a Skype trick to run multiple Skype accounts on one computer at same time. If you are also a kind of person who run multiple Skype accounts for office and personal usage then this trick will be going to helpful for you.
