  2. Disabling System sound while in call

    I feel like you should be able to turn off your system sounds so the other person in the call won't hear your notifications/videos/music playing...etc

  5. Settings

    Everytime I open the app in my laptop, it starts as online instead of keeping the same status as I chose. It just takes away the control of users in their own status.
    Not to mention the annoying calling sound with no posibility of changing it or muting it. Choosing facebook messenger or whatsapp over Skype.

Can you do anything about that?

  9. Change the look of Skype – make it look like a regular desktop phone.

    Change the look of the Skype so it looks like a regular phone on your desktop. You can leave it loaded in Windows and place it in the top left corner of your desktop. Out of the way and ready for it to ring. When it rings you click in the answer

  10. Select different directory for each downloaded file

    Option to decide where received files should be downloaded to. As it stand you can have one default directory, but since I have subfolders, it's better to have the option to manually decide each and every time, where the file should end up

  11. Alow switching accounts

    Instead of having to sign out every time you wanna switch a Skype account there could be a list of all of your accounts saved on it! All you have to do to switch is just click on the account you wanna switch into! Now that's easy!

  15. Manual User Update Function

    Manual update button needs to be brought back and incorporated in the Settings again , Reason for this is simple, the current automatic update function does not work on every update.

    Currently I have version 8.50.0.38, but I know that there is an update to this and has been out for a while this being 8.51.0.72, a manual update function would eliminate this annoyance immediately, automatic this and that is OK BUT only if it works EVERY time.

    Now I have supplied the proof of the flaw in th update system, please could you fix it

  16. Give option to cancel Skype membership.

    Since I no longer use this id on Skype, I don't understand why I am automatically signed in to this one when ever I go to use Skype under a different id here. I only use Microsoft Hotmail for e-mail only but never Skype too.

  19. copy chat outside of the Skype application space. Duh

    I can select text from a chat, and copy it within skype, but a user should clearly be able to copy chat text and paste it outside of the Skype application space. Duh

  20. Change the Windows 10 desktop notification back to yellow. I can't see it on my black taskbar

    The notification bubble that appears on the skype icon needs to be brighter, yellow would be great, I can't see it on my black taskbar and always miss messages.
