  1. A mouse click onthe screen to capture an image instead of having to press ctrl-S on keyboard which distracts you to stare down .

    If you had a simple mouse click option to capture screens durning a meeting without being distracted by looking down at your keyboard to press CTR-S .. that woudl be great, otherwise, every screen capture will have you facing down to your keyboard insated of face to face screen shot.

  3. Idea

    Hi, This is Fawad.
    I'd recommend and request you guys to introduce a notepad in the application of Skype, as well as in the online Skype. It'd be appreciated and will help people like me, who use Skype on daily basis. Thanks

  10. scrollbars

    Can you please adhere to the system setting of Windows 10 for scrollbars, and not hide them automatically? It is highly toxic that scrollbars disappear, one of the many opposites of usability that sneak into software if programmers and/or managers want to show off.

  11. Remove the top and bottom call bars!

    It looks bad and distracts from the call. the old look with the floating call bar was great. I liked how it disappeared when you didnt move your mouse above it.

  12. I need a package to call all African countries: north and south, East and West countries

    I suggest to create a package that includes all African countries.
    My company is exporting food items to all African countries so we have to call them in daily basis.
    So it will be great if you made that easy with creating that package.
    Thanks

  13. Give option to make black band at bottom of screen transparent

    The black band at the bottom of the screen is just taking up space and detracts from the experience of talking to someone since you can't see their video full screen. Surely it is possible to make the band transparent as in previous versions.

  14. Float + Full screen option

    The Float + Full screen option hid the icons a few days ago. It was an amazing experience to view the share screen in that mode. The icons "auto-hide" was a good feature

    The option is no more available. Can you please get that back.

  17. Option to disable participant gallery on mobile skype

    I have not been able to find a setting option for disabling the bubbles representing other participants. These bubbles block the lecture slides, and in my opinion add little functionality.

    I use skype mobile on Google's Pixel 2 device

  20. Your website that shows pricing is confusing and almost misleading.

    For example the World Subscription for $13.99 for 63 destinations looks great until one hits continue, then you learn that actually most of the countries are land lines only. To figure out what works for me I had to go down each of these rabbit holes to see which countries are offered and if they are for landlines or mobiles or both. For someone like myself looking at this for the fist time it was very frustrating. There has to be a better way of presenting this information.
