Auto start Skype on Win 8

Hi, How do I set Skype using Win8 so that it starts and logs in automatically every time I start my laptop. At the moment it logs in only when I click on Skype in the Start menu but then logs off when I go to another program.

Thanks

Install the desktop version, rather than the app version. Win 8 doesn't allow auto-startup of apps, but the desktop version can do this normally.
