  2. Please restore to Skype the option to turn off automatical updates!

    Please restore to Skype the option to turn off automatical updates! With this option gone, all Skype users are hostages of all bugs that keep appearing with new and unstable (but now mandatory) versions.
    E.g. I have constant problems with Skype since the program updated itself from 8.49 to 8.50 and then 8.51 - so much that either I shut down Skype and go without it, or it irritates me with every Windows startup.

  4. Manual User Update Function

    Manual update button needs to be brought back and incorporated in the Settings again , Reason for this is simple, the current automatic update function does not work on every update.

    Currently I have version 8.50.0.38, but I know that there is an update to this and has been out for a while this being 8.51.0.72, a manual update function would eliminate this annoyance immediately, automatic this and that is OK BUT only if it works EVERY time.

    Now I have supplied the proof of the flaw in th update system, please could you fix it

  6. Fix Skype Settings, please.

    Can you make this handicap Skype 8 at least to REMEMBER the chosen settings?

    Every time we start it, we have to set it again on Contacts, because most obviously Skype 8 has Arteriosclerosis, and does NOT remember anything,
    It just goes again and again on Chats.
    Please DO NOT IMPOSE your smart ideas on the users. and leave them with some choice, about what they want to see first, when they open the application.
    Thank you.

  9. Return old functionality

    Hello.
    Skype behavior is changed.
    Now Menu is showing on left & right mouse button.
    I suppose, that skype must open the main window by left mouse button,
    and show the menu by right mouse button.
    Please return old functionality.

    Tanks,
    Denis.

  14. Fix Volume Control on Skype 8 for Mac

    The fact that I can't even change the volume on Skype independently from my system volume level is ridiculous, and, frankly, the sole reason I don't use Skype 8. This seems like a MASSIVE oversight to me, and as long as it remains unfixed, I will either continue to hunt down Skype classic workarounds or stop using Skype altogether (and I'm sure MANY others will agree). Please make Skype for Mac useable.

  15. I'd like to see a way to delete chat messages by grouping rather than one by one.

    the chat window get clogged up quite easily. I'd like to see a "select all" feature letting users delete as required.

  18. Restore remote logout feature on all platforms

    You have removed most /commands but you have left /showplaces. This is useless without /remotelogout

    Please restore remotelogout which is a great security feature

  20. bring back the FIND feature that can search & find with my words that i type EXACTLY!

    new version Skype doesn't recognize "positivity" as a correctly spelled word. they come out related words that i type only and did not highlight the words that we find and very hard to see.
