  3. Import/sync Google contacts

    At a minimum, it should be easy to import Google account contacts. Full synchronization would be great!

    There may be other suggestions here which would include this. Please don't ask the user to search through them to find one.

  4. Use standard scroll bar control

    The scroll bar does not work correctly. Standard windows scroll bars have a rich set of behavior, but the custom control used in Skype is missing some of it.

    Clicking above or below the thumb should scroll up or down by one page. It does not.

    It disappears when the mouse leaves the window.

    It changes width on mouse-over, making it harder to hit (Fitts' law)

    It does at least capture the mouse.

  5. 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

  7. With the old Skype I had an alphabetical list of contacts (Skype and non Skype) that I just had to click on to bring up their number(s)

    With the old Skype I had an alphabetical list of contacts (Skype and non Skype) that I just had to click on to bring up their number(s) to ring. All I get now is a list of numbers with no identification so I always have to use the telephone number pad.

  9. New method of adding number to contacts is too cumbersome/too many steps

    In the old version of Skype you could right-click on a number (one that had called you or one you had called) in the Call list and get a drop-down menu that included "Add to Contacts" and "Block This Number".
    Now, to add a number as a contact you have to CLICK the number in the Call screen, CLICK the number again at the top of that screen and THEN scroll down the THIRD page that comes up to find "Add contact".
    This is very time-consuming and seems totally unnecessary. Why not just bring back the right-click drop-down menu???

  11. Multi-select Deletion of Contacts and Delete All Feature (Case Number 1487623533)

    Multi-select Deletion of Contacts and Delete All Feature (Case Number 1487623533)

    Facebook-style shady tactics come to mind with the fact that importing contacts is super simple via the phone app share feature but deleting them in bulk is super painful as this requires a 3 to 4 step process for individual contact.

    Please fix this asap. I'm a huge fan of Microsoft but this is off-putting to say the least.

    Thx,

    Steve R.

  15. Remove Alphabet letters in contact list

    Having a letter of the alpahbet before all the contacts starting with that letter makes the list footprint unnecessarily big on screen. Make them and the profile pictures go away with compact setting

  17. Верните группы контактов!

    После обновления скайпа, в моих контактах теперь нету групп с контактами.
    Ранее я создал 5 групп разных контактов такие как - Дом, работа, итд... И мог сортировать контакты по ним, как сейчас это делать в новом скайпе?

  19. 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.
