Copying Skype
January 24, 2012 7:28 AM   Subscribe

I have Skype on my computer, want to have the program on an external hard drive, too. Is it as simple as finding the (24 MB) file on my computer, creating a folder on the external drive and copying the file into the new folder?! Big thanks for your help.

Oh, duh. It's Windows, XP (I know, I know....)

It's not quite that easy, as there are some data files that need to be moved as well. You can try the PortableApps version linked by devnull, or try these instructions. I did the latter a while ago, and it works well.
