Skype 4.2 for windows

Background
I currently have a Skype account on my home office PC (windows XP) and the same one on my Toshiba laptop (Windows 7).  Which I use to access my email and use Skype when I travel.  I would like to set up another Skype account with a different user name so I can call my Skype office account and talk to them while I am away.

I would prefer not to take the 'set up another user on the laptop in windows' approach.  How can this be achieved.

Cheers,

Wayne

Thanks for the reply.

The screen shot at the start that Dave uses for selecting a second account does not match mine.

His Mac screen shot has: Accounts - Contacts - Call - Chat etc
Mine has (version 4.2 - latest): Skype - Contacts - Conversations - Call - View etc.

Can not find any reference to - 'Sign In as Another User' that he refers to.

do you have a  File menu? If you do trying going to File>sign out
after you sign out you should see a option that says "Dont have a skype account" click there and you should be able to create another account
