  2. Please restore to Skype the option to turn off automatical updates!

    Please restore to Skype the option to turn off automatical updates! With this option gone, all Skype users are hostages of all bugs that keep appearing with new and unstable (but now mandatory) versions.
    E.g. I have constant problems with Skype since the program updated itself from 8.49 to 8.50 and then 8.51 - so much that either I shut down Skype and go without it, or it irritates me with every Windows startup.

  3. Skype drops the system sound by 80% despite I have set this to Do Nothing under the sound setting.

    It might be nice to put option for this setting in the skype setting itself too.
    It will be also nice to control how much bandwidth we can use for the video calls.

  5. When adding new users to a group make 'USER' as role pre-set, or add a choice when adding to set role right away

    Skype seems to add new members to a group randomly, some are added as user, some as admin. especially when you work with multiple admins, you need to check every time with show member and then change all that are added as admin and you don't want them to be, one by one with setrole to user.
    Having a choice when you add someone right away between roles, would be really helpful

  6. Split View Maximum number of Window in Setting

    !!!Maximum number of Split View in Setting!!!

    It is annoying when many new window open after clicking each conversation. Should be user preferable.
    If i can set the number of window suppose 3.
    Please maintain a queue and remove last opened item when crossing provided setting's value. Also you can set default 10 for max split window.

    Thank you.
    Hope you understand my point.

  7. Speaker audio selection memory

    Each time I start SKYPE I must go to settings and select my speaker choice to get receive audio to function. I suggest that once set, the software remembers the choice for future sessions and permit a change to be made later if needed.

  8. Outgoing call Skype ring tone is very annoying and too loud. No option to make it silent or switch to a different sound.

    Change the outgoing call ring tone and make an option to make it silent or at least calmer

  12. Ability to disable hardware acceleration

    We should be able to turn off Hardware Acceleration - as available in most other apps that have video capabilities!

    I have a particular problem with this as an AMD graphics card user I do not have the ability to do this globally so I do it in each app individually (as keeping Hardware Acceleration on gives me a green flashing screen and eventually crashed my computer). I have searched for a fix to turn this off but it does not seem to be available.

  15. basic skype

    Include a setting so the user can can remove all the useless functionality like emoticons, money transfers, locations, polls and just have it as a phone and conference tool. For most users, this is all they are looking for from Skype.

  19. Disabling System sound while in call

    I feel like you should be able to turn off your system sounds so the other person in the call won't hear your notifications/videos/music playing...etc
