You should see there the Skype application file Skype.exe (Skype icon). Double click on this file. What happens then?

go to Skype folder inside C:\Program Files (x86) and go to phone folder and then right click on Skype application and select send to Desktop (Create shortcut)

Re-run skype using this new shortcut.
