  1. Skype loading when Windows starts

    Making it difficult to find the setting to prevent Skype from loading when Windows starts is why users don't have trust in your products.

  10. Block Skype from running on start-up

    You have coded something which cannot be blocked from running on start-up.

    There is;

    *No setting under General (contrary to what your documentation says) - https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA34869/how-can-i-customize-the-startup-and-close-options-in-skype-on-desktop

    *Nothing is registered in the Start-Up folder

    *It does not display under system settings>Start-up apps in Win10

    I will uninstall this app until and unless I need it since that is the only way to minimise boot impact, and I must say that a MS product not conforming to normal start-up procedures on an OS built by MS is sketchy.

    It's such a shame that your decision to do this distracts from the excellent…

  13. Skype 8 On MacOSX Needs to have a disable automatic updates check box like 7. It's an admin nightmare.

    The new app is causing issues updating at unexpected times. Please address this and send out a fix so we don't have to turn off updates to all squirrel platform apps.

    Add the recognition of green screen or any color to make the change background more professional, zoom has that option, only for that reason I will continue to use zoom, the rest is very good

  18. refresh screen to update Last Seen and other options

    My contacts and I have been confused on certain screen objects, but mostly how the Last Seen option is updated. Apparently, when opening Skype, that option and others remain as they were when closed down. From trial and error, I found that clicking on another contact, and then back to the first one, that the screen refreshed and the Last Seen updated. I ask that possibly an option to refresh the screen (right clicking the mouse provides nothing), be added or that the screen automatically refresh whenever it is opened.
