We normally use more than one services for only purpose. In the same way, we tend to register a couple of accounts at one service provider but only use one or two of them. For instance, I use both Gmail and Yahoo Mail for exchanging with friend or receiving mail, notification, receipt etc… from online services. Obviously, like many other users, I register more than one account at these popular email services. They are completely free, we all know!In case of Skype, it is the same. In fact, it is quite convenient to own and use multiple account for different purposes. You can easily interact with your colleagues to exchange about the current projects via first account, meanwhile using the second for calling, chatting with your partner, friend or family. So, we sometime may look for a solution to run or open multiple Skype accounts at the same time.
If so, it is time for you to download Multi Skpe Launcher, a very popular handy program to manage and open multiple Skype account at the same time. It works great, as an implement option/feature of Skype app because by default, this P2P based voice IP service only allows you to login and open one account on one computer. As a Skyper fan, I highly recommend you to get download it to open multiple Skype accounts simultaneously.
Do you know, before that, to use more than one account on Skype app, we have to configure Program Files directory or by the most simple way, log out the first account and then log in the second one!

I have just uncovered another tool as you see in the title of the post, SkyMI 1. This free tiny application has just been released and announced on Softpedia. In my opinion, SkyMI 1 can be a good alternative of Multi Skype Launcher with more choices.
After you install the tool, SkyMI will help you manage your Skype account easily. Besides that, SkyMI allows you to protect your private Skype account with a master password. To get started, in the main interface, you can hit the “Add Skype accounts” option. I recommend you choose “Start with Windows” option. However, you should take notice that if you use a master password, each time the tool opens, you will have to provide that confidential information to start using it.
Last but not least, SkyMI does not work on my Windows 7 64bit laptop, so that I am not able to bring you more screenhosts than one from Softpedia. I will give you more detailed about my experiment with SkyMI when I back to home to test it on my PC that are using Windows 7 32 bit.
Updated: I just got a new idea: Install Skype and SkyMI on Windows XP Mode and it works. By default the tool uses Español language. You can see the image above. After few minutes playing with SkyMI, I can say that it only helps you to manage multiple Skype accounts, not open or run multiple Skype accounts simultaneously as Multi Skpe Launcher does! Be ware of that my buddy!
