  4. teamviewer like remote pc control

    It would be nice to allow the control of pc or mac by the remote party by sending a code . Similarly like teamviewer is doing , and that they pretend to charge for.

  5. Status

    I try to keep my status on invisible, but Skype resets me all the time to "available" That sort of defeats the purpose of asking if I want to remain invisible.

  8. Add a way to go to messages from Gallery to see the conversation happened around the shared item

    Suppose I'm viewing gallery in any skype chat and now if I want to see the conversation happened around that particular media file or whatever I had shared, I just can't. I manually have to scroll the messages one by one until I find it.

    For reference you should try Telegram. When you;re viewing any images in it and when you right click on it, it gives you choice to go to that messages. So you can see the conversation happened around that media file. I hope this makes sense to you and you guys will work on the resolution.

  10. See rescinded invitations

    There are lots of spammers out there. I get 4 to 5 unsolicited chats per day. The spammers have become smarter and withdraw their invitations quickly if you do not respond immediately. It would be an effective anti-spam tool to be able to see who has invited you to chat and to be able to flag that invitation as legitimate or as spam. We have a list of blocked contacts. The withdrawn invitations could be listed there, too.

  12. Skype should never change the status to Active now on its own!!!

    Every time I sign in to Skype after a reboot it changes my status from Away (which I set manually before quitting Skype) to Active now! It's a completely illogical behavior which ruins the product for me

  14. INCLUDE SOUND(S) TO NOTIFICATIONS.

    I would be great if I could easily assign a unique sound to some of my contacts or when I receive a message. I couldn't find where to do this .

  15. Show unread count badge on taskbar button (not in the system tray)

    While some users like the icon in the system tray, I believe that notifications belong with the actual taskbar button for a more unified feel. Skype for Desktop supports this notion and adds an unread count badge to the taskbar button. I would like to see this feature ported to Skype for Windows 10, please.

  16. Confused, thank you!

    I was in China used free vpn to get contact with skype support and accepted remote controll, but the stuff wrote dev.microsoft.com afterwards. I do not know if there were any corelation - later, hacker came into my computer via microsoft acount, i could not call for those service I payed, later, I could not call to skype contacts, later my skype was locked, I could not logg in.
    I found also skype translator was in my contacts and Boot support also in my skype-none of them were verified by microsoft, I do not know how these happened.
    and all…

  17. Allow for “ringtone” change

    Please allow us to change our Skype “ringtone” to something of our choosing. Let us make changes to what ringtone we want our contacts to have. I have missed numerous calls because I didn’t identify the sound. It isn’t distinct. It does not matter how loud my volume is; I can’t hear the Skype call. I like using classic ringtones and music as ringtones because it’s attention-grabbing and I can assign a specific ringtone to each of my contacts so i am able to identify who is calling without having to look at he phone screen.

  18. Enable/Disable Setting of Auto Showing Last Text

    There should have a setting of showing last chat text, like while I opened my Skype it showing all contact list and their associate last text which I have sent/received, which is very embarrassing while I opened my Skype in-front of other peoples, like colleague, friends etc.

  20. Unlink Microsoft Account from Skype account

    When I got my laptop and signed in with my Microsoft Account for the first time, Microsoft decided to automatically create a Skype account which I didn't want and I can't delete it without deleting my Microsoft Account. And I can't unlink my Skype Account.
