  1. Add Direct Printing options in our Skype Attachment

    Please Add Direct Printing options in our Skype Attachment.
    Dear Developers, I face a problem many times. Every day I send and received lots of files and images. So please add a direct print option from the received files.
    That's helps us so much.

    Thank you.

  2. Return old functionality

    Hello.
    Skype behavior is changed.
    Now Menu is showing on left & right mouse button.
    I suppose, that skype must open the main window by left mouse button,
    and show the menu by right mouse button.
    Please return old functionality.

    Tanks,
    Denis.

  3. option to start minimised/background

    Add an option to start minimised/background.
    When auto started at login, allow skype to start minimised.
    Does Not have to be a setting, just a command line option would be sufficient

  5. appearance settings changes

    After Login the second time after choosing not to remember my account details at the first log out, all the appearance settings arranged goes back to default. It should remain the same unless the user decides to change by itself.

  7. Make part of a password visible on the app.

    Banks will show you pay of your bank card number so you know which card you used.
    Can you do the same for the so password.

    My phone kids me in to Skype.
    My pc Skype is locked and I cannot get in because it was trying to force my to use a Microsoft login not my personal login that I have had since before Microsoft bought Skype.
    The over rigorous ms account security rejects all my answers and days I am not me so it will not send me a new password.
    And so I cannot get in at…

  10. Change default audio out from speaker to earpiece Android

    When I receive a Skype call, and my phone's screen is locked, the app defaults to speakerphone mode. Here are the issues with that
    1. Privacy - I am not interested in people listening in on my conversations
    2. When I am able to answer an incoming call without Skype dropping, I have to enter a fingerprint to get to the main screen where there IS a way to mute speaker. However, most times when I give the fingerprint Skype disconnects, so even if I try to answer the call, and am successful, if I try to get out of…

  12. split window view

    How much time do we have to wait for Split Window View on any version and on any platform?!
    Sound like you ignore the users who want and need this features!
    It should be even a classic view of application.

  14. Remove as many "features" as possible. Or at least make every "feature" optional.

    Suggested contacts is the best example of what you think of as a "feature" and I think of as "an absolute nuisance". Whenever you add a "feature", be aware that a lot of people will hate it and make it optional.

  17. Do not Reset settings after logout (without remember login info)

    When we logout with out saving login info, please keep the settings atleast the appearance settings(it is not a sensitive info!) .
    I'm using the same machine daily, and I need to signout from it daily. In this case I need to configure my settings daily. Its totally wasting my time.
