  1. Transparent window after resize

    If you resize the main window to a larger size, the window becomes transparent in the new larger area. For example, if the Skype window starts at 800x600, and I increase the width of the window to 1200x900 there will be 400px of space on the right and 300 on the bottom that do not render and are completely transparent to the background content. Not even the window control icons for minimize or close are displayed, only the window border. If I close the app at this size and then restarted, the new size is kept and the window rendered…

  8. add person to this call button

    when you have a call and someone wants to call you, there should be an option to add them right there. In previous versions of Skype, this was a feature, but now it's way less convenient. Now you have to decline their call, then hover over the screen, then press an add person to call button, then find them on a list of contacts, and then you can press the add person to call button. All that could have previously been done in one simple click, is now put into 5 different tasks, which make the process redundant.

  11. Auto start disable

    Give us the ability to not have Skype run at startup again. You leave us with Uninstall as the only option. Nice work.

  12. New contacts?

    Hello,
    After updating Skype, unfamiliar contacts appeared in the contact list! The phone number where I can be found in Skype is disabled. Synchronization of contacts from the address book of my smartphone is also disabled and has long been disabled! Why do I see other people's contacts?
    Thank you.
    Regards, Alexey.

  14. Instead of answerig to chat with silly emoticons, please provide an option to answer "yes" and "no".

    When answering to questions made in chat, an answering option would be most convenient. Much like the "answering with" emoticons. In real life, we need to answer with understandable "yes" "no" and "maybe" etc, not with some silly emoticons.

  15. remove red border or change color for screen sharing

    Please remove the RED border on screen share or give us the option of a medium gray/tan to choose for our screen share options. The RED border causes migraine headaches when trying to screen share for streaming games/movies/etc.

    PLEASE GIVE US OPTIONS TO REMOVE THIS BORDER OR RECOLOR IT. EVEN A BLACK BORDER WOULD BE GOOD.

  18. Limit number of simultaneous notification-windows to 1 (instead of the current 3)

    Currently constant messages can fill up large area of the screen while being stacked. I suggest adding option to limit it to single one (which may increase in contents with the following notifications).
    For an example and further improvements for UI, please refer to the now obsolete "Skype classic".
