  1. Sharing of individual screens rather than the entire desktop screen

    The updated version of Skype does not support sharing individual screens or windows but rather just the entire desktop. This is not a good idea specifically if you are using Skype for teaching. This could create confusion for the users and at the same time pose a greater risk on data privacy of the one sharing the screen. Please return it ASAP!

  2. Save files inside folder which name match either chat name or group name

    It would be great to save files inside folder which name match with chat name or group name, currently either we have to choose where to save or it saves inside Skype folder, the feature I requested allow me to save files into a folder structure, this way files from different-2 clients or chats don't mix up, it can be a optional feature but this would be very useful.

  8. Add the option to modify keyboard shortcuts

    I use skype allot and on different devices, so with so many different keyboard layouts sometimes it is hard to reach for example: if i want to hang up the call by using shortcuts, on wider keyboards it is harder to press ctrl + shift + H. So by adding the option to change which keys i wanna use for a specific action, then it makes it easier and more convenient to use them.

  9. Add "toggle read receipts " keyboard shortcut

    It would be very helpful to be able to easily toggle the "read receipts" using a few key strokes instead of having to access the cumbersome settings window.

  15. Message read notification in chat when not online

    skype does not currently allow you to see if your message in the chat has been read, when the user who sent the message is in the state (offline eg invisible). My request would then be to see the read notification regardless of the state of the sender.

  17. Please provide a option to find out how many devices are linked with a Skype account.

    I am using Skype for almost 6/7 months and have logged into 5-6 devices at my work place but currently I don’t remember that in which devices I have been using my Skype so I think it will be great to find out how many devices are active and using my Skype.
