  1. Press a Number to Connect the Call... All wastage... Please remove it from my number

    Recently came to know that if someone calls to my Number they need to Dial Random Number. Simply a headache started.
    I've been using this number for years... Don't know how to get rid of it?
    Skype you've done the life more irritating.

  3. NotePad/textPad/Sticky notes

    Could you please think on about a sticky note on Skype?

    Many people use same ID in office and home and other as well. and they need to note down some point in office and want to work on that at home. On that case we need a sticky note to note and remember that point in skype.

    may I know is it possible any platform where we can note down on skype?

  5. Skype keeps getting worse

    Hello, I only would like to know if you are aware that version after version Skype is always worse. From 5 stars to zero in my opinion.

    Now search into messages is simple unusable, you cannot find almost anything, in the past you could search very easily in years of chats
    Phone features are terrible.
    Phone Contacts and Skype Contacts are still a mess.

    I suggest to came back to basics... and came back on features that was perfectly working.

  9. Pressing a random in order to connect the call is absolutely a waste of time.

    We work with an IVR and adding the ability to press a random number to connect the call will not work for us.

    Give the option to remove this feature ASAP. Its already disrupting our service and we're loosing.

    Chat reference: 1477711917

    If not fixed, we'll need to find a solution somewhere else that doesn't force us to press a random number

  10. Letter Colors

    I use a black background and the letters are a light grey. The light gray is hard to read. Yellow, Yellow-orange would be easier to see.

  14. Allow users to disable auto startup in WINDOWS 10, it is annoying to have an application you don't use always running in the background.

    Allow users to disable the auto start of Skype when you boot into Windows 10. It was really dumb to remove this feature just for Windows 10. Please add it back, as it is annoying to have an app you do not use regularly always running and using system resources in the background. It makes people not want to use it, and move to other apps that are more user friendly.

  16. Skype for Business PowerShell connector module for Mac to fix missing profile picture

    In Skype for Business on Mac, there is an issue where the profile picture is not shown (https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/skype-for-business-on-macos-doesnt-show-profile/669d7782-bf08-4199-8988-c67e30b3bc71). The suggested solution works via the Skype for Business PowerShell module (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/enterprise/powershell/manage-skype-for-business-online-with-office-365-powershell). However, this module is only available for Windows (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=39366), not for Mac. Please provide a Mac version of the Skype for Business PowerShell module so the profile picture issue can be fixed!

  17. Please add the ability to turn off the security feature press ‘X’ to connect

    Please add the ability to turn off the security feature press ‘X’ to connect. This is causing issues for people trying to call me and will ultimately stop me using Skype if I am unable to turn it off

  19. Don't hide "quit" from the context menu of the systray icon. Also make Ctrl-Q quit.

    Don't hide "quit" and make Ctrl-Q quit the app, just like your older version does.
