  2. signing in accounts

    Hi,
    I would like that my several accounts appear when singing in, instead of having to go through the whole process of typing the email and password each time I want to switch accounts.

  6. Add the ability to change the Skype Name

    I changed my name legally and my previous name is included in my Skype Name, which is unchangeable. I don't really see why this is unchangeable when plenty of other, similar services allow the changing of usernames, and I don't particularly want to be looking at a name that I have separated myself from every time I look at my Microsoft account.

  13. Real-name/ ID registration

    I've been bugging by lots of fake accounts, some of them even sent out threats but without real-name/ID registration it is impossible to locate these people. I suggest to set all accounts can only be bound to a real ID number so to stop skype becoming a criminal tool.
    Once we report such account, we hope skype team will have content reviewer to review the conversation and work with local police department to get those who are sitting behind the screens and kept doing illegal things.

  14. Username change/deletion

    I understand that Skype got migrated to Microsoft and they are now connected and/or basically the same. But for me as an EU citizen it is concerning that as a result of this migration I cannot manage my data properly, it feels like I am not provided the means to handle my own personal information correctly corresponding to privacy laws. Here is the reason and the example:

    Your Skype account cannot be split from your MS account, that is a fact. Also, the Skype username chosen at registration cannot be changed. You can create another MS account + username to…

  15. Being able to delete a skype account only, a request for mental illness survivors.

    Those with mental illness that see Skype as a trigger for trauma doesn't want their accounts to exist. Being unable to delete the Skype account prevents peace of mind for thousands of users who don't want to use this service anymore.

  16. 1. Ich habe die deutsche Sprache eingestellt, wieso erscheint diese hier nicht ?

    Das Umschalten auf die jeweilige Sprache, trotz vorheriger Einstellung funktioniert nicht oder stark verzögert.
    Wieso werden hier überwiegend englische Begriffe gewählt, was jene Leute ausgrenzt, die diese Sprache nicht beherrschen.
    Ich kann nirgends einen Hinweis finden, ob es in einer Gesprächsrunde mit verschiedenen internationalen Teilnehmern, eine automatische Übersetzung gibt, die der jeweilige Teilnehmer bei sich eingestellt hat.

  20. Make Skype manager more user friendly

    Redesign of how the SIP group admin and clear concise documentation needed regarding working examples.

    SIP Group admin can not have inbound calls and this is not well known.

    Their account seems to be limited to managing the other user's features and such but call routing is known to be a non-event or troublesome.

    To compound this issue this forces for example a SOHO user to set up another account just for this purpose.

    Risking instant security breach if any matching details are sighted.

    How dear boffins at MS is that helpful and why is it in all this time…
