  1. Remember right panel settings

    One Win10, I want it to start with the Contacts tab selected and Active Now filter on. I have to change that manually EVERY TIME I START UP. It drives me nuts. Please just remember the settings.

  3. Have the ability to edit a contact. Not just the name.

    Have the ability to edit contact information where it is incorrect or add additional contact details like mobile, land line or anything at all.

    Pisem kao budala svaki dan kao da trazim od skypa ubace ne znam nija sta komplikovano a ne opciju koju je imao jos pre 10 godina.
    Niko ne odgvara vec kao budale glasamo za novu opciju.

  11. Add and Remove options for Suggested and Alpha sorted contacts

    I am trying to list all of my existing contacts at the top of the left panel, however the Suggested lists (which display first) contains only some pre-determined contacts, not all. 'The only setting allows just Favorites, which displays below Suggested, but does not allow removing the Suggested ones, so that favorites will display first. Below that, the contacts are displayed by an Alpha sort, which if you include Favorites, can display contacts 3 separate times. How about options allowing adding or removing contacts for all 3 options, Suggested, Favorites and/or Alpha sorting so user can display contacts as desired…

  16. Phone contact only

    Skype does not see all my iPhone contacts. Also it conflates my skype contacts with my phone contacts. It’s very messy. Please have a phone contact only for the mobile app version.

  18. keep Skype 8 backwards compatible with 7

    I have my contacts stored in a local Outlook data file. with Skype 7 I can directly call contacts from Outlook (fat client) via a right mouse click. This feature has gone in version 8 (desktop version)
    In earlier days, backward compatilbility was an evidence
