Starting Skype when I start windows

I must start Skype manually each time I start my computer.  It's more a nuisance than a problem since I have checked the "Start Skype when I start windows" box in the General Settings tab in the Options menu.  It should automatically open when Windows opens.  Is there something else I should be doing?

 

Cheers

Miles

You could try signing out from Skype (sign out...not quit) and then checking the Start Skype when computer starts box on the Welcom to Skype /sign me in screen.

That did the trick.  It is displayed in Quick Launch now which indicates that it is online. 

 

Thank you,

Re: Starting Skype when I start windows

Just wondering... My Skype starts automatically but in order to disable this feature I need to log in to access advanced options.

Checkbox for starting along with Windows should be on the home screen, along with "keep me logged in". If I'm logged in it wouldn't bother be, if I'm not - I may want to disable it.

Re: Starting Skype when I start windows

Hi there,

 

I've tried the solution suggested in this thread. However, there is no welcome screen. I am presented with the usual Skype Home page.

 

The problem is that if I check the box to Start Skype when WIndows start and the Save, if I open the Options again the check box is no longer checked. 

 

This used to work, until after one of the Skype updates.

 

I running Windows 7 Enterprise SP1

 

Thanks,

 

Daniel
