Sign me in when Skype starts

Hi,

is it possible to change value of the check box "Sign me in when Skype starts" on the Skype user login screen without the means of user interface. Maybe there is a config file or a script I can alter, so that, when a user opens Skype, the check box is checked?

Re: Sign me in when Skype starts

I have (sign me in when Skype starts) ticked. However, I keep getting asked to sign in, why?

I have never had this come at me and darned if I'm going to change my password everytime this happens. Does someone have an answer to this? No wise cracks please as my patience is running thin.

Thanks

are you signing out before you Quit Skype?

 

if so, you will be required to sign in in spite of having set that option

 

Quit Skype without signing out and I think you will see that you are signed in automatically when Skype starts the next time
