Run 2 Instances of Skype for Personal and Work Accounts

Rich Keller - Tuesday, August 30, 2016

It can be a struggle to keep personal and work lives separate. If you rely on skype to communicate with both family/friends and work contacts, you may have felt it can be hard to manage your skype contact list when mixing work and personal contacts.

And if you're like me, your original skype name that other skype users need to find you can't be changed. So your main skype account already contains your family and friends, so changing it would be a headache. 

Here's a little-known trick to allow you to run 2 separate skype accounts at the same time.

Keep your existing account for friends and family, then create a new work account that reflects your latest branding and contact info, and then run 2 instances of skype.

Here is the detailed instructions at the skype blog.
