  1. Skype sign you out when ideling | Prevent this behavior.

    Skype client when idling signs you out and sets it self as offline until you open Skype as an active window in Windows OS. The means that no one can call or contact you over Skype chat because in offline mode nothing obviously gets through. This behavior should be corrected so that Skype is always online when you set it to "green status" even if the computer is idling or goes into Screensaver mode. it is really crazy that Skype signs you out automatically and it should not be like this!

  3. A feature to dull down the callers image, as it is uncomfortable stark when you see you image so clear with all the lines and wrinkles.

    On the settings button, along with the option to blur the background, there should be an option to blur your image too, particularly if you may not be looking your best when calling.

  4. Add a feature that lets you control the audio of other apps while you're in a call. I'd like to turn other apps up.

    Skype turns the volume of other apps down when you're in a call and I'd like to be able to turn those apps back up, especially when I'm sharing my screen and audio.

  6. Skype drops the system sound by 80% despite I have set this to Do Nothing under the sound setting.

    It might be nice to put option for this setting in the skype setting itself too.
    It will be also nice to control how much bandwidth we can use for the video calls.

  13. Change the look of Skype – make it look like a regular desktop phone.

    Change the look of the Skype so it looks like a regular phone on your desktop. You can leave it loaded in Windows and place it in the top left corner of your desktop. Out of the way and ready for it to ring. When it rings you click in the answer

  14. copy chat outside of the Skype application space. Duh

    I can select text from a chat, and copy it within skype, but a user should clearly be able to copy chat text and paste it outside of the Skype application space. Duh

  17. Surname sorting in Contacts section function adding

    Добавить в Контакты функцию сортировки по ФАМИЛИИ, а не только по имени. Очень поможет тем, у кого 100+ контактов. Как легче найти Александра Сидорова по имени Александр (30 человек) или по фамилии Сидоров (3 человека)

  20. Hello Team,

    At present, the skype is displaying an option to record the screen and later if I'm recording the screen then once the call is ended then the screen recording should come to me but the option is coming to another user who has attended the call.
