  1. new message notification

    With the latest versions of Skype (8.52) on Windows, if the message window is minimised and a new message arrives, a tiny red dot appears over the Skype Taskbar icon. This tiny red dot is easily missed. Can we have an preference option to have a pop window appear with the new message text, instead of the red dot?

  2. Can you have a notification come over films and cames which a I can switch to 'on' or 'off' so that I can tell when someone sends messages.

    On windows 7 before I had to have windows 10 I used to get little messages pop round my game and round my films when I was watching. I don't know if I would have been able to turn them off had I wanted to. Now unfortunately my sick mum cannot get a message through to me when I am doing something like that nor can my son. Why has this facility gone?
    Oh by the way being forced to use Windows 10 sucks, when I upgraded my chip I had no choice. Please resell and update Windows 7 as…

  4. FIND FUNCTION

    Skype version 8.52.0.138

    I am currently using the latest version of skype which apparently was not the best idea. After the update I have lost the "find" function. We use multiple group chat at work and the best function when looking for a skype ID on the message box is to use "find" function. This stopped working after the last update. I have a couple of workmates whom are having the same issue. Please fix this issue. Thank you!

  5. Find File in Folder on Attachment Right click

    We are having an issue to find the attachment, we had to "Save As", but the issue is it starts to redownload it again, if the file is big it takes time. need to add a "Find in Folder" feature to directly access already downloaded file.

  9. Name of file for exported chats not always the same for the same user.

    Name the exported chat history file to a more significant name, not always the same such as "8usernameexport.tar". It should at least include the date of the export.

  10. Allow Sender to see timeline of their own edited message (Message History)

    Skype have feature that sender can edit their message.
    But after long when they see back , it's useful for sender too see what they edited and how many time . Will help in some important conversations too.

  12. When I open a new conversation in Split View, I would like focus to be on the message box

    When using Split View and a Conversation is created or opened, focus should be on the message box, so no additional mouse clicks should be needed.

  19. instead of only being able to open a file within 30 days, you should make it to be able to be opened whenever. old memories not saved.

    For old memories if there not saved, we can look back in chats and look back and possibly download them to keep, sucks we cant look back at old files. nor open them

  20. Please add a system to obtain files that are expired ((( 1480607555 )))

    I have a file from 2 years ago, and the only place that I have it is in one of my chats, but it is expired. I spent 100+ hours with that file, and I would very much want it back.
