  4. only administrator

    Hello,
    I would like to be able to create a Skype group and be the only administrator so that I can control that no member of the call can open or close microphones and kick people out of the call, as well as adding or not people in the group.
    Thank you.

  7. Store several Skype account credentials in one desktop app to sign in to either with one click

    I use Skype desktop app and I have two accounts. When I log out and log back in to Skype, it only remembers the last account signed in, and that's the only account that can sign in automatically in the application. If I need to switch account, I need to log out and sign back in the desired account. There is no option for it to store my credentials to both accounts and then chose which of the account to access (as exists in other platforms like Google or Facebook). I would like this to be an available feature in…

  10. Multi chat windows or at least keep the position of the cursor at the position it was left

    Sometimes we need to have more chats on the screen. So sad that new Skype is worse than old one. But if you can't bring multi chats in (which is just outrageous) at least keep the cursor where I left it. It always jumps to the end and if I jump over more chats to copy/paste some text I need to scroll all the time.

  12. sir,While a meeting .some members mute audio,some remove others ,it shoud be restricted and the person doing any action should be displayed.

    only Admin should be allowed to add or remove the members. During a meeting there is a message you are removed by some participant. His name should be displayed. Hope for early attention

    Skype mobile has the draw feature. It would be useful on the laptop windows version because teachers could circle points of discussion on graphs and pictures.

  15. Skype Local number for Singapore

    I am a fan of Skype and use it for both business and personal. It would be helpful if Skype has local number for Singapore. It's crucial for us to use it for business.
