  5. picture and video without both screens

    Hello. I would like the ability to choose not to have my screen show up in pictures and videos I take when on video calls with my grandson. Not only do I spend a lot of time saving and editing but my screen also cuts out parts of the pic. or vid. very frustrating.

  11. stop forcing auto update / enable pause updates

    Option to pause updates ... cause all the versions after Skype version 8.67.0.87 have broken audio device selection
    I have my headphones set up as "Speakers" but Skype rings on the default device (and the "Ring on additional device" is off)

  13. To be able to uninstall this garbage!

    I would like to be able to remove a program from a machine I spent a lot of money on, and after spending money on Microsoft Office. It is awful I can't, it feels like spam/ a form of ransomware (ie. if you don't have this, you can't have any other products the entire world uses).

  19. add disable auto update feature (for minor releases)

    The auto-update feature for major releases makes sense. It brings important security updates and uniformity to the skype experience (which is good for a number of reasons, even though it is annoying).

    However, every time that skype auto updates, it breaks the connection to programs that work with skype. Since this happens every few days, it makes it difficult to use skype as part of a workflow.

    So, if you added an option to "only auto update on important security releases or major upgrades" (v.8.1 to 8.2, for example) but NOT for minor updates (v8.22 to v8.23), it would make…

  20. Reset Skype Account Functionality

    Currently, there are no features to reset the Skype account.
    After a long time- years- I can see that I end up creating lots of group chat and lots of messages with contacts, now I want to delete all the messages and leaves all of the accounts at once.
    But this functionality is missing on Skype.
    Instead, Microsoft suggests us to delete the whole Microsoft Account, which is pathetic.
