  1. Bring back the old feature where you can choose who is the admin of a group

    I use skype for taking classes and recently my students are misusing the title of an admin. As everybody is an admin due to the new feature my students are removing me from group calls. Due to this issue, I cannot take my classes. Please bring back the old feature.

  4. To suspend your account and not delete

    Have the option to suspend your account and not delete fully, I just want to leave skype for a short period of time and would like the ability to suspend my account without fully deleting it.. so that messages cant be received. I don't wish to delete it fully I just want to suspend using it without losing my screen name and details.

  5. Option to change the Skype Live Name

    Many of us have embarrassing email ids and skype picks up the live name based on the email id. So I really want an option to change the live name.
    If you can't allow unlimited changes then at least allow 3 changes.

  6. Remove requirement for cell phone number on account lock removal

    I needed to reset a forgotten password, I reset it with the code received by email. I was then hit with a "give us your cell phone number" to verify you. I don't have a cell phone, How can I proceed with this?? It is not reasonable to assume everyone has a cell phone. I don't, please remove this requirement to need a cell phone number, it is very frustrating. I pay for a Skype phone number and I have now lost access to an account that I pay a subscription for!!!

    I am very frustrated that I have to…

  12. Requesting the ability to change Skype usernames and the ability to unlink accounts without affecting current Microsoft accounts connected

    Usernames should not cause confusion for utilizing either Skype or Microsoft accounts. Please make it possible to change the Skype Username to the email associated with the Microsoft account. This would be for a select number of cases where the username NEEDS to be changed as a result of the Skype and Microsoft merger. In the future it would be great if there was the ability to change Skype usernames and the ability to unlink accounts without affecting the current Microsoft accounts connected to it.

  13. Unlink Skype name from wrongly linked Microsoft email account

    Please Microsoft, find a solution to unlink wrongly linked Microsoft email account with Skype name, in order to link the Skype name with the right Microsoft email account... There are a lot of people out there, who are struggling with the same issue. I understand it could have been our "fault" to link the wrong accounts, however, what could be done, SHOULD be able to be UNDONE, don't you think? :)

  16. Skype Id Deletion

    I've tried to unlink and delete but I can't i feel this should be an easier solution to either change or delete given we didn't create the name in the first place. Please unlink my Skype profile from my Microsoft account and delete it or just delete the name or allow me to change it

  19. Merging old Skype account (user name) with/into Microsoft accounts (email address).

    I have a Skype account that I created before Microsoft acquired Skype. The account is 'based' on a user name. I recently created a Microsoft account with my email address. Same email address as is in my account settings for the old Skype account. However, Microsoft automatically created a new Skype account for me. Why couldn't I just migrate my existing old Skype account to Microsoft and sync them all up?

  20. Same phone number for multiple accounts

    Allow multiple accounts to use the same phone number. I have two accounts and am not allowed to list the same phone number for both of them. This makes it difficult to manage the account where I am not allowed to have a phone number. It’s very frustrating
