  10. You should be able to stop another person from sharing their screen

    Often people forget they are sharing their screen and there is no way on my end to stop it and return to a normal IM window. I have to message the person to remind them to stop sharing their screen.

  19. Connecting old Skype account with new MS account

    Hi. I have had a Skype account since before it was a MS product. You created a new Skype account for my MS account, which isn't that one.

    My MS account is connected to my MS365 subscription and my Skype account is connected with a Hotmail email, which became it's own MS account.

    Please allow me to merge the Skype account with my new MS account.
