Is it possible to make a desktop shortcut to dial a number with Skype?

  • Not that I have found. It doesn't appear possible at this point. Sounds like a good enhancement for a future release. – ale Oct 15 '10 at 13:28
  • Anyone found a solution for this since the last posting? Would be great to have this option like exists for normal contacts - that is you could link to IM a Contact on Skype or Call. – user10463 Dec 10 '11 at 7:50
  • I dont think the Skype app has an api to do this I agree it would be great. This may be possible in the future with ICS I was testing my voip sip account to make internet calls, now whenever I make a call I am able to use the option to call with either wifi internet sip or regular mobile. – imp Dec 28 '11 at 5:59
  • No you can't make quick dial shortcut in skype, But you can send this idea as a request to skype for apply in future versions. – Ali Feb 8 '12 at 12:42

There's a new widget available from Google Play Store that solves this issue:

Direct dial with Skype by sbice

One Click Skype!

Calling friends through Skype is no longer time consuming and complicated! With "Direct dial with Skype", it's simply just ONE CLICK AWAY!!!

It's a widget installed on your desktop & help you speed dialing your friends with ONE CLICK!

  • It's not working in one click. I have a problem with the NFC toggle. If this is off (default it's off) it isn't working. – nancy Dec 1 '16 at 10:34
