Hello!

  • Open Skype's website. Go to https://www.skype.com/en/. This will take you to the Skype home page.
  • Click Sign in. It's in the top-right corner of the page. Doing so prompts a drop-down menu.
  • Click Sign up. This link is at the bottom of the drop-down menu, just right of the "New to Skype?" message.

  • Enter your phone number. Type your phone number into the "Phone number" text field.

    • You can also click Use your email instead to enter an email address here.
  • Create a password. Type a strong, memorable password ***** the "Create a password" text field.
    Click Next. It's a blue button near the bottom of the page.
  • Enter your first and last name. Do so in the "First name" and "Last name" text fields, respectively.
  • Click Next.
  • Select a country or region. Click the "Country/region" box, then click your current country or region.
    • Skype will usually detect this from your browser's location information.
  • Add your birthdate. Select the month, day, and year in which you were born from the Month, Day, and Year drop-down boxes.
  • Click Next.
  • Verify your account. Enter the code that Skype sent to your phone number or email address into the text field in the middle of the page. To retrieve this code:
    • Text - Open your phone's Messages app, open the text from Skype, and note the four-digit code in the message.
    • Email - Open your email inbox, open the email from "Microsoft account team", and note the bold, four-digit code in the email.
  • Click Next. Doing so will submit your code and create your Skype account. You can now use your account to log into Skype on computers, smartphones, and tablets.
  • If Skype prompts you to enter another code that's displayed on-screen, do so and then click Next to finish creating your account.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
