  6. Alternative caller ID

    I have swiched off my called ID, but it has been replaced by some kind of fantasy number.

    My suggestion is to replace this by a text like 'Skype call'.

  8. Size and placement of Skype window

    I see that you have finally placed the Skype window at the last known position and with the last known size, but this does not carry over from one session i.e. restart, to the next.

    This should be "meat and potatoes" or at least it was with my software.

  11. Feature to easily download the record of Skype calls with another user

    A print button to capture call history! Easy... why doesn’t this exist in a simple format?

  13. Would like to switch between my 3 international Skype caller ID's so that a local ID comes and they have a local number to return the call

    I make frequent calls to the UK, Australia and New Zealand and i live in the USA. I have a skype number for each of these countries so that people can call me back on a local vs an international number. I would like to be able to switch between country caller ID's so that it is not just showing a UK skype number wherever I call.
    It would be great to switch to Aus skype number as caller ID when calling clients in Australia etc.

  14. Compact list mode for Favorite only in Skype App

    Hi!

    I was thinking since you guys have a compact list mode for your app in the settings, would it be also possible to just put an option to customize the compact list mode.

    For example, one can have an option to compact list just the FAVORITE chats or the just the REGULAR chats.

  15. proxy.pac does not work

    Skype 8.53.0.85 doesn't read proxy settings
    Hi !
    I've uppgraded all the Skype Desktop applications at my workplace from 7.32.104 to 8.553.85 and now it does not recognize the Proxy setting.
    We use a Proxy.pac file for configuration and that does'nt work.

    If I set our config direct in internet setting then it work.

    Please fix this or tell me what version I can use where Proxy.pac file settings work…
    I also tried version 8.55.0.141 but it did not work…

    Regards
    Lars Oscarsson
