  3. Give CS agents a mechanism to re-add packages

    I have subscribed to a skype long distance package for 10 years. recently, i had some issues logging in to my skype account (due to some confusion relating to the move to make skype accounts microsoft accounts many years ago) in order to update my CC number and my package expired.

    Now i find i can't renew the existing package and must instead pay a higher rate for the same service as a new package, and that your CS agents cannot give me the old package back or give me a discount on the new package.

    that is an absolutely…

    Hi there. Thanks for your feedback. There is a way how to permanently delete your Skype account. Just follow the steps here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/skype/forum/all/how-to-delete-skype-account-permanently/2baea2a4-6283-4589-95f5-22b3f034c878

    However, if you will delete your Skype account, you will also delete your Microsoft account and you’ll no longer be able to sign in to other Microsoft consumer products or services such as Outlook.com, Office Online, OneDrive, Xbox Live, or Windows.

  8. Find a way to recover ALL chat logs

    I want users to be able to restore all chat logs because most conversations about forum bans take place on Skype. At least AIM kept their logs saved. Not like Skype. People who didn't use AIM used Skype.

  9. Signing In

    Please bring back the drop down menu displaying ones accounts so we don't have to keep typing out our Skype name before inputting the password. If I sign out it will only be to switch accounts so 'remembering that account' is useless. We used to be able to choose our accounts from a drop down menu.

  12. remmeber password

    I'm tired of having to log in every time, return the old feature of remember username & password

    If not possible, allow us to use old skype classic without forcing us to upgrade to this new one (I hate it so much! but can life with it if at least could remember username & password)

  15. Can you go bak to having a global answer and end call keystroke?! it's hard to end and answer a call while blind.

    Can you have a global keystroke that allows you to answer and end calls? In your later versions it was alt and home to answer and alt and end to hang up. i was wondering if we could have that again! it'is hahrd to navigate through the window while you are getting a call and blind at the same time!

  17. free 60 min Skype with Office 365

    when you subscribe to Office 365, you get monthly 60 minutes for Skype calls.
    Instead of creating a new Skype ID, it should be possible to choose to activate the free minutes on an existing Skype account. That would be good design...

  18. Keep old Skype ID during migrations

    When you migrated Skype to Login.Live.Com and Microsoft, your system assigned a new Skype ID to the email address I was using with my old Skype ID. After getting some support I learned that to access my old Skype ID I have to log in with the Skype ID itself and not my email address. If I log in with my email address I get taken to my new system-assigned ID. Apparently I can't migrate my contacts, conversations and history from my old Skype ID to the ID newly assigned to the same email address, nor can I replace the…

  19. I would like to have other options to sign into my account when I travel overseas so my account stops locking!

    I am military and deploy. A lot. Every time I try to access hotmail or Skype at a new computer it wants to send a text to my phone, which does not have access in theatre. I usually have the code send and answer the questions but it STILL locks the accounts. Thus, you cant Skype home! So you are deployed and cant call your family! Completely useless. There needs to be another way aside from a text that you can access your account. Why are there not questions? Or why is my second e-mail not able to verify? Microsoft,…

  20. Change my online status on the tray bar icon in Skype for Windows 10 app

    Now Insider version of Skype for Windows 10 app (Version: 14.37.26.0) has tray bar icon but it has no ability to change my online status just like Skype for Desktop has.

    Please, bring this feature also into the Skype for Windows 10 app!
