  1. Can we change a normal group to Moderated group

    In normal group chat, anyone can add or remove participants but if we already made one normal group and we want to change its settings to moderate so we have proper admins to operate. This will also allow to keep all the data of old group but just changing it settings.

  2. Allow users to permanently remove "Share With Skype" menu

    I don't use the "Share With Skype" Explorer context menu. I'd like to be able to disable and permanently remove it, so it doesn't come back with the next Skype update. I have way too many useless context menu entries as it is, and they clutter up the interface, making it harder to find entries I actually DO use. I shouldn't need to ask for this. If you had any respect for your customers, you would have provided a way to do this from the start.

  3. How do I create a Shortcut for Skype, for when it is deleted

    My skype shortcut was deleted from my desktop when I deleted the MS IE browser. Now I can't create a new shortcut, as it is made near impossible to locate the skype app on my pc. Please make it easier to create a skype shortcut for the desktop!

  6. disable all quick commands

    Hi, I would like to disable skipe shortcuts. When I share the screen during a call I use a cad that has other quick commands. Sometimes I unintentionally do actions that interrupt the call. How can I disable the keyboard commands of skipe? Thanks.
    Thanks for your answer but I've already tried and it doesn't work. The online help writes: The global shortcut keys. The keyboard shortcut is Skype while Skype is minimized or not active. Global hotkeys are enabled by default in Skype.I am especially interested in disabling CTRL + SHIFT + H.
    bye thank you

  7. confirmation request before deleting a caller ID

    On the iOS app, the delete button is right next to the button to switch the caller ID. But .. the worse problem is, there is no request to confirm that you want to delete it. If I want to delete a conversation, I get asked, but if i accidently press or swipe on delete ... the caller ID is just gone ... That leaves me with the problem, that i cannot use my ID anymore before I flew back to the US. And .. it's also bad that it cannot be restored ... maybe a request to confirm would…

  9. Put back the option "disable automatic update feature of the Skype"

    Please, put back the option "disable automatic update feature of the Skype", because there are various cases of incompatibility of newer versions of the Skype with older versions of Windows (e.g. Windows 8.1 with Skype 8.71.0.36).

  10. Add an ability to disable GPU hardware acceleration

    For some Electron apps it's common in case of Linux to hang an entire system in the unpredictable manner. I saw this behavior on Skype, RocketChat, VS Code. My current understanding is it may be related to GPU hardware acceleration, as for some users it was a solution. See the example here:

  20. Add filters for chats to display

    I would like more filters for the chats that are displayed, for example to only show chats with messages in the past x number of days. I have chats from several jobs ago that I wish did not appear in my default view (Recent Chats). Chats from 2015 are not recent!
