  1. Privacy for Skype to Skype between parents interference during parenting time.

    Allow calls only to device I’m video calling. I want to stop my children and I from being watched on another device. For parenting time the children should have their privacy along with the parent having the call. Unsure if there is a way around this already in privacy but my 8 and 9 year old go to FL every year for half of the summer and their dad and step mom are watching our chat on another device. Not a good feeling for a mother. Thanks!

  5. User's name in the centre of the screen when using bigger words.

    My father is visually handicapped. Therefore his monitor shows bigger symbols and bigger words. We are using identical computers, just the size of the symbols and words is different. My father’s skype name is displayed in the left upper corner of my screen. My skype name is centralized in big letters in the centre of his screen = in front of my face on his screen. Would you please correct this and move it back to the left upper corner of the screen? Thank you.

  6. I could get rid of goto meeting if I could choose a presenter and remote control shared screens

    when you share a screen, it would be nice to let others remote control it. for now I pay for goto meeting just for this feature. otherwise I wouldn't need it.

  7. Reset Microsoft Authenticator Office 365

    If you need to re-enable 2FA or need to set it up again because of a change like a new device or domain, this guide can get you started.

    Some of these steps happen automatically, such as triggering the setup process for 2-FA if your global admin of Office 365 has forced you to use Office 365.
    follow the provided guide to reset Microsoft authenticator.

  11. Hey there, my stage name is "Jackson Hole Rose" & I really would like my Skype name to change to this. RosecLLc does not fit me any longer.

    Can you please change this? Use me as a test perhaps! I am a syndicated radio host & changing the username to JacksonHoleRose will be important for me to include Skype in my social channels. You can find me all over social media as JacksonHoleRose - your platform is the only one that won't let me change. If you aren't able to change it, I won't be using it. Thanks!

  13. Fix or remove "Less passwords. Adding WAM support to Windows 10." Allow logging out of ALL accounts with a click.

    MODIFY OR ELIMINATE THIS FEATURE: "Less passwords. Adding WAM support to Windows 10 so you can switch between multiple accounts without a prompt to enter a password every time."

    The way it is set up now in Windows 10 YOU CANNOT LOG OUT OF ALL ACCOUNTS. One account always appears and logs in with a click. There is no easy way to disable that so that no account appears and logs in with a click. All of the work arounds are cumbersome and inconvenient.

    LET THE USER DECIDE WITH A CLICK if they want an account to stay logged in…

  14. att.com/deviceunlock | Unlock ATT

    No stolen or lost mobile device can be unlocked. If a new phone has just been purchased and an old phone needs to be unlocked, there will be a 14-day period before the company grants you an unlock.

    If someone has a device with a two-year subsidized plan, they will need their account to be in good condition, which means that both the plan and the device must be fully paid for for unlocking to occur. Also, AT&T customers who use AT&T Next's early upgrade plans must have everything paid to unlock their device.

    Those who have just bought a…

  16. The ability to use Skype for emergency calls (what in the uk would be 999 calls).

    I am type one diabetic, I have a advice in my arm that links to my phone that sends me updates on blood sugar levels. Early this morning I could not find my phone, and was going into a hyper.

    The only means of communication I had was with Skype, and I couldn't call 999 if it became necessary on Skype.

    I eventually decided to go to Microsoft support, and a lady called Sarah eventually sorted it out by calling my phone repeatedly until I found it.

    I am explaining the whole thing, as you dont to have an autoimmune…

  17. If user is leaving chat this chat item goes at the top in Recent Chats. It is annoying especially for outdated chat groups.

  18. An opportunity to see a draft message in all Skype instances at the same time

    Good day.

    Proposal:
    Could you please add an opportunity to see a draft message which has been inputted from different devices in all instances of the Skype at the same time ?
    An example: I input a draft massage via Skype on my mobile phone, I stop inputting (without sending). Then I open the Skype on my laptop and should see the draft message that has been inputted via my mobile phone.

    Current problem:
    Because now If I write a draft message in the Skype in my mobile phone I have to rewrite this message in the Skype in laptop.…

  19. Trans accessibility: "Skype Name" change

    Old Skype accounts let you pick your "Skype Name", though new ones generate a random code instead. People who are grandfathered in may be stuck with something legible though that they may not want.

    As an example, I made mine as a kid using my name. It turned out that I am trans and that name is now loaded with baggage I shouldn't have to be exposed to. Unfortunately, it's impossible to change or remove from the Microsoft Account that it is now connected to. It looks like the only way to be rid of it is to abandon the…
