  1. Recovering chats

    For the next update, give the option to recover or export/import chat history from local storage to the cloud. Conversations from before 2017 are completely missing, making things extremely difficult when trying to locate old conversations.

  5. instead of only being able to open a file within 30 days, you should make it to be able to be opened whenever. old memories not saved.

    For old memories if there not saved, we can look back in chats and look back and possibly download them to keep, sucks we cant look back at old files. nor open them

  6. Let me turn off animated emojis.

    It's so distracting and I'm not sure how such a basic feature is missing given I can't even turn off emojis altogether

  9. autocorrect

    Autocorrect / spell check: In my Skype on Windows 10 there seems to be no alternative to remove spell check. Lots of red wavelines below well written words, which is annoying. Spellchecking is turned off in Windows/Devices/Typing.

    Also it autocorrects some things; seems to be inherited from Office. Hopeless that it can't be controlled as standalone.

  12. Please add a system to obtain files that are expired ((( 1480607555 )))

    I have a file from 2 years ago, and the only place that I have it is in one of my chats, but it is expired. I spent 100+ hours with that file, and I would very much want it back.

  15. Give us an option to disable spell check

    Currently I was informed by a support agent, today August 14, 2019, that there is no way to disable spellcheck for Skype on Windows 10. This is unacceptable, it should NOT be that difficult to include an option to disable it. Please stop joking around and just include the option to disable it, this is ridiculous and I've never in all my life come across a single program on Windows, Linux, or Mobile, that both has spellcheck and does NOT have an option to disable it.

  16. shift+enter should do a line break

    Please make the hotkeys editable as it was.
    "shift+enter should do a line break"
    Do you have a MS Word or another text app?
    "ctrl+enter" to send and "shift+enter" should do a line break.
    It was so good in old skype, there you could decide for each hotkey by self.
    I used enter and "shift+enter" to do a line break, as in almost any app in the world and "ctrl+enter" to send
    But why do you make "shift+enter" to send the message too and not to a line break?
    Please make hotkeys editable as it was.

  17. emoticons

    Please make the emoticons list scrollbar thru all emoticons, as it was before.
    It is quicker to find the right one, I do not know in which tab you pack it.

  18. Spellcheck is really needed in skype

    Spellcheck is very necessary in skype. Business communication should be error free. It is very important to have a check. This is in all instant messengers.

  19. Removing a group I'm an admin on

    Is there a way to delete an entire group that I created or that I am an admin on? I couldn't find any option for it & there are a lot of old groups with old contacts that I simply want to remove.
