  3. Support for USB handset functionality

    Before Microsoft took over Skype, the application had support for functionality on USB phones such as answering and ending calls, adjusting volume control, mute and so on. This is Remote Call Control (RCC). This was really useful and I used it with my Jabra USB handset. This functionality has been removed for some reason - a real retrograde step. Please can it be restored ASAP?

    Please Please give more sound calling and receiving choices. For some reason your standard sounds drive my cats crazy and me also, very annoying. Thank you.

  7. Create a way to limit the time that old conversation remain in your log.

    Have an optional way to limit the time that old out dated conversations remain in your call log..... say by month or year.
    At the very least a way to delete multiple amounts of old conversations instead of one at a time!

  10. Do not sign me out

    Don’t sign me out. The new sign in is frustrating. To have to sign in again when I intentionally didn’t sign out is annoying.
