  8. Account Deactivation Handle

    There should be a handle for deactivating or removing an account for all members. For this will enable one to correct a mistake on account creation or data management. It's quite annoying all the time.

  9. Skype phone new feature for adding security

    Not an idea but Skype has just added this new security feature that incoming call needs to dial a number to connect. This should be done as a configuration and not obligatory.
    Our customers don't like this an even worse you cannot understand which option to choose from.
    Once again, very disappointed with Skype!!!!

  11. A privacy option which prevents (via skype of course) the other party recording the video. This is very important if the other party is U18

  14. task bar inbox icon to alert missed call/chat attempts

    provide a taskbar inbox icon to serve as an alert to missed calls/chats. not just a temp popup. Which, by the way, I am not sure it currently exists, I believe I have seen it once.

  15. VERSION 8.47 NOT GOOD, MY IMAGE REMAINS SMALL AND CONFINED TO THE RIGHT HIGH. INSTEAD TO IMPROVE, SKYPE WORSE

    IT WOULD BE BETTER TO RESTORE THE POSSIBILITY OF ENLARGING THE IMAGE, AS PREVIOUSLY.
    I ASK FOR WHICH REASON HAVE BEEN MADE DETERIORATIONS

  19. I would like to have the ability to stop receiving GIF's from other employees on a thread. I don't want to see them.

    To have a setting in Skype to disable/enable GIF's. I do not care for them and some people at my job feel the need to CONSTANTLY send them. They never stop running and are very distracting. Instead of telling people to quit sending them, I would like the option to NOT receive them PLEASE??

    Hi Aaliyah, thank you for your feedback. This feature is already available in Skype :) Just go to Settings – Messaging and under When I receive a file, select Change Directory. And if you are downloading photos manually, just right click and select Save As.

    Let me know if it works for you :)

    - Petr
