  1. Here is an idea, if I set Skype to not launch on start-up DON'T ******* LAUNCH

    Automatic launch set to OFF
    Still, EVERY time I start my PC, there is SKYPE.
    Can anyone at Micro$oft do anything right?
    I know you all think you are
    brilliant, forcing skype to the top of my system during a pandemic, "oh, people will buy and use our ."
    No, we won't.
    Skype is
    , I may want to use it sometime, BUT THAT IS MY * CHOICE.
    If I set some
    task you guys think I may want to NOT LAUNCH on startup, I would like it to NOT LAUNCH ON STARTUP.

  3. New feature, SKYPE ***** OFF

    Here is my idea, Skype doesn't just add itself to my start up in windows 10.
    Here is another idea, when I log into the service I DON'T WANT, and then set it to NOT LOAD when windows 10 starts, IT NOT ******* LOAD.
    Come on Microsoft, you are literally designing your way out of people's interest.

    I do NOT want random programs installing themselves on MY PROPERTY, and then deciding against my options to do whatever the they want on MY *** PROPERTY.

  6. Need more billing "state" options in the Skype billing drop-down menu

    Many active duty service members are stationed on military installations both within the United States and around the world. These military installations have US-equivalent addresses used both for mailing and billing information. The "state" for these locations are dependent upon the region of the world in which the base is located - for example, a US military installation in Europe would have a mailing/billing address "state" as "AE" for Armed Forces Europe. Likewise, an installation in the Pacific would have "AP" for Armed Forces Europe.

    These "states" (AE, AP, etc.) are not available options for Skype billing information even those…

  7. User Control Activities

    Mobile Version

    1- Skype doesn't allow to turn off the ringing on incoming call (if the phone is not on silent mode). Skype should allow user to turn-off ringing on incoming call by pressing power key.

    2- User last seen time stamp should be in user control.

    3- Idle status feature should be a part of user control. Skype should allow user to manage their idle status based on last activity, and also there should be an option to turn-on idle status: after HH:MM:SS or turn-off idle status: keep the status as it is.

  8. Please provide users option to prevent others from tagging them for status change.

    Please provide users option to prevent others from tagging them for status change. People who have relation will set up notifications for me and I have no say in preventing them nor do I have the option to see who have set up notifications for me.

  9. Add option to close the skype.exe process upon closing the skype window.

    Sure this is a corporate decision, to have it always open, when you opened it once in a lifetime and I am not suprised that Microsoft continues to **** people off by a lack off basic settings but hey, this wont be read anyway by a developer anyway.

  10. keyboard shortcuts

    Add option to disable keyboard short cuts. The short cut for end call... Ctrl + E...how many games use Ctrl as crouch then E as action...

    Everytime i play CSGO for example and plant or diffuse the bomb...the call gets ended. This is an issue on dual screen not sure if its an issue without.
