  1. Please make it so we can minimize the Skype box that over-rides the screen... I can't see critical parts of my screen.

  2. UNREADIBLE supportt pages

    Please change the color schemes on everytrhing that has to do with Skype. Contrast is essential to allow also visually impaired people to use your stuff. There is nothing wrong with honest fat black text on a white background.
    Light gray on white causes a lot of strain and anger and why?
    It's not modern, not nice, not needed, brings nothing extra, ....
    Use a good readible font like Tahoma in bold black and you will make a lot of people very happy.
    That would finally be a change that is worthwhile.

  3. Make a custom title bar and menu for linux version

    The current titile bar and menu uses default gtk3 theme which is not consistant with current APP UI design. Please consider making a new one. like visual studio code.

  5. Bring back the resize ability

    Bring back the resize ability. The dashboaer is far too big and cannot be reduced vertically. It goes from the top of my screen to the bottom no matter what size monitor I use. The old skype, before Msoft got its hands on it was fantastic. I hate it sinse Msoft took it over.

  6. Meet Now & New Chat

    Remove the“Meet now” and “New chat” because it takes up too much room plus it serves no purpose.

  14. SKYPE - picture in picture mode

    Hi,

    I would suggest to provide picture in picture mode for SKYPE for Business Meeting. This will help to keep the skype on the top of screen when in long meeting and in parallel, a person can do other work and do not need to switch window to know the status of meeting.

  15. allow users who have home phones instead of cellphones to use skype. Your policy is idiotic because if I had cellphone I would never use sky

    allow home phone a well as cellphone. why only cellphone? if I had cellphone I would never need skype.
    your policy is idiotic.

  17. select multiple chats

    Please allow a simple way of deleting multiple chats. Click/select, click/confirm, for each chat, is not viable. Select all would be enough.

  18. It would be nice to be able to update to the most recent version of skype from within the app. Incredibly difficult to update the app.
