  1. Logout and quit in one easy step.

    Why can't I log out and close this virus, Skype from the taskbar?
    Why do I have to maximize the app, log out of the account then go to the taskbar and quit this abomination?

  8. Restoring Removed Messages for Legal Purposes

    Hi! I think it would be better if you will create a feature that would enable us to restore or view removed messages. Coz I once had a case with my previous employer who accused me of sabotaging the company, they had a screenshot of my conversation with a colleague but when I checked it, they removed some of the messages I made which would could've helped me prove that I never sabotaged the company.

  11. Please allow desktop login from mobile device (I'm on Chrome)

    I have the app on my phone but I often like to log onto the desktop version of Skype as well. Until today (3/21/19) I was able to do so. Now it says that my browser is not supported. Please allow desktop access from mobile devices.

    Thanks!!

  12. keep Skype UWP/SkypeBridge.exe from endlessly producing error messages

    Skype UWP with SkypeBridge.exe is infinitely generating error messages of the kind "Windows cannot access the specified device ..." (German "auf das angegebene gerät bzw. den pfad oder die datei kann nicht zugegriffen werden") on every of the several Windows 10 machines in my entire office.
    After replacing it with Skype 8 for desktop no more of these error messages appears on my screen, but as this is just a work-around and no solution I would expect Skype Development to take action and make the problem disappear.
    Above all, this and similar occurrences are an already well known issue for…

  13. home button

    Please give us back the home button found in Skype Classic. I miss the home button. In is cumbersome not to have a home button so one can return home after checking chats, calls and notifications. I DO NOT want to stay in any of those places after I visit them. I get lonely for home. In real life when I go somewhere I always return home, because that is where I stay. It's comfortable and familiar. It's HOME. When I go to a friend's home, I don't stay there forever. If I did I would soon run out of…

  14. Mac Version of Skype

    The mac version suffers from the same bug as the PC version. You cannot resize the window to reduce the wasted screen area.

    Microsoft please fix this basic bug. It has been reported now for some months and yet nothing has been done.

  16. Skype for Mac on the Mac App Store

    Since the Office Suite has been made available on the Mac App Store, I think that Skype should also be available on there.

    Hi guys,

    1- Please simplify skype login in all devices including desktop with mobile number as well without any pin/password and auto login on startup or on open like WhatsApp or viber

    2- Also add functionality to load contacts in mobile devices so that we could invite or chat our contacts using this awesome app.

  18. For old 'conversations' listed, it would be nice if they could be deleted 'en mass', and not have to delete them one by one.

    user should be able to delete old 'conversations' enmass, and not have to do it one by one.
    Only conversations that user was a part of should be shown.
