Windows 7: creating a .bat file for skype doesnt work?

creating a .bat file for skype doesnt work?

Hi, I'm writing a .bat file to run certain programs upon a click. This includes Skype, but I can't seem to get it to work.

The file path is C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe but writing start "C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone" Skype.exe doesn't work. A window pops up saying it can't find Skype.exe but I've checked the path and it's correct.

Any help is greatly appreciated? Thanks.

"cd C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone"
"skype.exe"
