  1. Two Instances of Skype. Same Time, 2 Accounts / User Names, Firefox


    I am endeavoring to run two instances of Skype at the same time. The idea is like one account for work and one for the family. I have the two Skype accounts working well enough. In trying to sort out how to get both active at the same time. I have become lost in history and jargon. Today I have been trying to sort out this method: How to Add a Second Account to Skype | Small Business - Chron.com First I am not sure if the info is current? This is my stall point: For a 64-bit version of Windows enter the following path C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\skype.exe /secondary This is not present in my computer. Lacking knowledge of such I am reluctant to set up a new command. Any thoughts will be very gratefully appreciated. I am afraid to

    :)

    How to change admin user account name?

    Ah so just ignore the 'Brink' and use the 'Brink2' as the example

    And step 1 and 2, I was confused at that part also.
    For example, my user account is called for e.g 'wizzle'
    If I want to change the name to 'wizzle2', and by following steps 1 and 2;
    -I sign out of my MS account (step 1)...and then sign in?

    I understand the steps 3 onwards but steps 1 and 2 with the sign out/in was confusing :?

    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:

    Skype?

    As this is a now quite established messenger system of sorts perhaps a Skype feature for people skype names so perhaps some real time problem solving/discussions could be mounted?
    Just a wee suggestion.
    What does everyone else think?
