  1. Fix the problems with directory search

    Ref: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/skype/forum/skcon-skcontact-sk_win10/i-want-to-give-out-a-skype-name-id-that-is-unique/8d60cf55-6172-4643-9450-f2657c62e0bb?messageId=46e2feb2-417d-4097-8bf6-d49b29c84e7f&page=1

    Microsoft needs to


    1. Put the fully qualified Skype name in people's Skype profiles- i.e. live:will.stott


    2. When producing search results present the ones with different qualifiers first - i.e. 'live:will.stott' before 'willcat27'


    3. Allow people to search for their own names so they can see the information given out / check the name is correct / lots of other reasons.

  2. Skype should add a feature that can lower an individual or your own mics sensitivity

    I think Skype should add a feature where we can lower or increase a individual or our own mics.

  3. Provide a Free Text about each Contact non HTML Format

    This Features are good for all of us
    1. Provide one free non html text so we can have remarks about this contact
    2. Earlier a bug was reported that as we scroll down the contact it repeat only first page
    Appreciated if you can fix this and also provide the new feature

  4. all contacts that are online show up in the list first and remain noted with green for available etc.

    I have a really big number of contacts and every time you open skype or do something with the contacts list it takes a lot of time regenerating the list.

  7. Blocked Accounts can Still See Your Profile

    Please make it so when you block someone you can no longer see each others profiles.
    I have the setting turned on which hides my Profile Photo from contacts who are not added to my contact list, but after removing and blocking someone they are still able to view my profile; including my PFP, my username, my location, etc. If I am removing someone from my Skype I am doing it for a reason. Please change this so they can no longer contact me and other people who're potentially being harassed/being contacted by strangers.

  10. You might like to add Japan (+81) to your scrolled list of countries on the caller ID settings. Seems like a blatant error of omission.

  11. Contactos sugeridos

    Es muy molesto que incluso habiendo eliminado contactos de Skype sigan apareciendo como sugerencias en el buscador. Deberían eliminar este pop para contactos eliminados o no deseados.
    Gracias.
    Saludos.

  12. Please add option that will give possibility to delete/block some accounts permanently.

    It will be great if we can delete/block some contacts permanently (without any possibility start to chat with some undesirable contacts by any side. Now blocklist looks more like a "favorites contacts list". So, you can unblock any contact anytime and connect with a person that may cause destructive actions. Especially this "idea" will help to AA and AN keep away from temptations.
    Please contact me.

  15. Windows 7 How do I delete contacts I don't know? If right click, only options are add contact or view profile. Blocking doesn't work.

    Windows 7. How do I delete contacts I don't know? If I right click on the name, the only options are "add contact" or "view profile". View profile has a block option but it doesn't remove the contact.

    Please have an option beside every dodgy name to DELETE the person.

  20. Display inactives contacts when filter only online contacts

    When we display only connected contacts, inactive contacts are not displayed. As inactive does not mean disconnected, it could be reasonable to display inactive contacts with connected contacts.
    For now, the only solution is to display all contacts which could means a big list.
