Run Multiple Skype on One Computer

Do you have more than one skype accounts which you want to use on one computer. It is possible by using following method:

1. Create a shortcut of skype

2. Right click on shortcut and click properties.

3. Select Shortcut tab if not already selected and type "/secondary" at the end of Target string.


It will allow you to run multiple skypes using the above created shortcut but you will have to type in the user name and password. If you want to save that as well, then add following strings as well in the target. "username:myuser /password:mypassword". Complete string would look something like this

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe" /secondary /username:myuser /password:mypassword

Make sure you don't change your path to match above shown in example :)

How do you give a C# Auto-Property a default value?

You can achieve it by setting default value in the constructor of the class.
