  1. delete quick actions on welcome screen

    It is not only superfluous nonsense to place the meet now or open dial pad ads to the desktop of long term skype users, it is unbearable to "have to" see horrible ugly microsoft icons... on my personal PC! There must be an option to delete, to get rid of these (microsoft) icons!! Please implement a delete setting by quick action!!!

  4. Contact bar on left should be exandable in width

    I have few groups that have same names but last parts of the names are different and at present I cannot change the width and all appear the same. Please allow users to expand its width.

  7. Háttéreffektus nem működik!!!

    A Skype 8.65.0.76 miért kötelező telepíteni, amikor az előző verzió a 8.55,0.141 jobb volt, mert ennél nincsen háttér effektus, de a réginél volt. Hogyan tudom megoldani, hogy a háttéreffektus működjön? Kipróbáltam többet is, és mindegyiknél működött csak a 8.65.0.76-nál nem. Kérem a segítségüket, az is jó volna, ha nem volna kötelező letölteni az újat, hiszen úgy is letöltjük, de ha nem jó visszatérünk a régihez, de akkor is az újat vagyis a hibásat telepíti, Így éles marad a háttér, sajnos!!!

  11. Touch through the network

    If there exists a device that gives the ability to touch through the network, would you ever want to integrate it into Skype? So we can touch each other, not just see and hear.

  14. Emojis background in message reaction in Dark Theme

    Hi!
    Currently reaction emojis are nested into a white circle under the message, even in Dark Theme. Which not only is not beautiful but also make it really hard to distinguish the emoji itself.

    It would be a simple modification to do that reaction emoji background are dark in dark theme.

    Thanks for reading ! :)

  16. Don't use that css scrollbar

    I hate css custom scrollbar that appears in Skype and other Microsoft newer stuff. Give the user the ability to change the scrollbar to what Windows use and I not saying to use css custom scrollbar for windows. I really wish you just stop using CSS.

  18. 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.

  20. 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
