You can run Skype for Windows from the command line. For example, if you have installed Skype in the default location, type the following command (including quotes):

“C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe”

You can also supply the following arguments:

/nosplashDo not display splash screen when Skype starts
/minimizedSkype is minimized to system tray when it starts
/callto:nameornumberCall the specified Skype Name or phone numbe
/shutdownClose Skype
/secondaryAllows you to start an additional skype.exe instance

The reason Skype forgets the password is generally that the user clicks the skype start icon more than once during a session. This makes skype attempt to log in again. When it fails because it is already logged in, it resets the stored password.
