I installed Skype in a user account that is not the administrator. How do I move it to the account where I have administrative privileges? If this can't be done, if I delete the limited user account, will all installed programs automatically become accessible under the administrator account?

all installed programs SHOULD by default be accessible to the administrator account....that's kind of the point of the administrator account

also...why do you want to do this?

I have never heard of any program under Windows XP that is not accessible to all accounts.

Admittedly, not all programs will run in a Limited XP account, granted, but that's an entirely different thing.

It is not on the Administrator's Start menu (only on the other account's). I have done a search, it can't be found.

I have moved the shortcut to the other account's My Document. Clicking on it from the administrator's account sends a message that this product isn't installed

I initially installed it on the other account not knowing that I wasn't going to keep it as the administrator. The bulk of my work is on the current admiinistrator's account and i would like to be able to make my calls as I work
