  1. Skype 8.62.0.83 / Can't enable call bar to hide for viewing in Shared Screen mode.

    When I'm trying to see someone else's PC screen when the opposing user enables the "Share screen" mode, I can't completely see their taskbar in the Skype screen & the previous Skype version (8.61.0.87), the call bar auto hides itself.

    The current Skype version (8.62.0.83), doesn't seem to have an option or ability to hide that very same call bar that has the mic mute, video disable & call hang up buttons, on it.

  5. Need more billing "state" options in the Skype billing drop-down menu

    Many active duty service members are stationed on military installations both within the United States and around the world. These military installations have US-equivalent addresses used both for mailing and billing information. The "state" for these locations are dependent upon the region of the world in which the base is located - for example, a US military installation in Europe would have a mailing/billing address "state" as "AE" for Armed Forces Europe. Likewise, an installation in the Pacific would have "AP" for Armed Forces Europe.

    These "states" (AE, AP, etc.) are not available options for Skype billing information even those…

  6. Convert older group chats into newer moderated chat

    With the introduction of Moderated chats it was described that any older style group chat, with at least one moderator, would automatically be converted into the newer style moderated chats. However, this has not been the case. I have two moderators, in a large group, and a non-moderator just accidentally started a group call, which shouldn't be possible.

    Is it possible to enable a feature that "fully" converts the chat without going through the pain of trying to get over 100 people to manually accept an invite into a new chat and losing the entire chat history in the process?

  8. User Control Activities

    Mobile Version

    1- Skype doesn't allow to turn off the ringing on incoming call (if the phone is not on silent mode). Skype should allow user to turn-off ringing on incoming call by pressing power key.

    2- User last seen time stamp should be in user control.

    3- Idle status feature should be a part of user control. Skype should allow user to manage their idle status based on last activity, and also there should be an option to turn-on idle status: after HH:MM:SS or turn-off idle status: keep the status as it is.

  9. Remember the Settings page I was last on!

    Remember the Settings page I was last on! Every day for live streaming I need to bring up the Settings page to verify my NDI signal is going through. And every day I need to click on the Audio and Video settings page. How awesome would it be if Skype simply remembered I was looking at this page last?

  10. Please provide users option to prevent others from tagging them for status change.

    Please provide users option to prevent others from tagging them for status change. People who have relation will set up notifications for me and I have no say in preventing them nor do I have the option to see who have set up notifications for me.

  11. Add option to close the skype.exe process upon closing the skype window.

    Sure this is a corporate decision, to have it always open, when you opened it once in a lifetime and I am not suprised that Microsoft continues to **** people off by a lack off basic settings but hey, this wont be read anyway by a developer anyway.

  12. keyboard shortcuts

    Add option to disable keyboard short cuts. The short cut for end call... Ctrl + E...how many games use Ctrl as crouch then E as action...

    Everytime i play CSGO for example and plant or diffuse the bomb...the call gets ended. This is an issue on dual screen not sure if its an issue without.

  18. Return the chat/contact window toggle

    Can we please go back to how it was before the most recent update (to version 8.61.0.87) with the chat and contact window please?

    Prior to this update, there was an option to view in split screen, or not. When not viewing in split screen, the current chat window used to replace the contact window when starting a new chat.

    After the update, the choices are split screen, or the chat sticks out of the side of the contact window and takes up a lot of space on the screen width. Please can we have the chat/contact window toggle back?
