  4. A feature of locking the mute button, so that if I don't want to, no one else can mute my microphone.

    There is already a feature, that any participant in a group call can mute any other participant's microphone. Although I can realise it's usefulness, there should also be a way of opting for locking that feature on one's side, as per one's wish, if he doesn't want to be muted.

  6. Only organizer or group calls has the control

    I've been teaching to kids using this tool and they discovered they can disconnect their classmates from the call. It would be PERFECT if only I could control that.

  9. Stop hijacking the menu bar on Mac OS

    Mac OS allows the removal of menu bar items by command + dragging it away, yet Microsoft has decided to make it persistent. This is terrible UI and should be changed.

  10. Windows 7 How do I delete contacts I don't know? If right click, only options are add contact or view profile. Blocking doesn't work.

    Windows 7. How do I delete contacts I don't know? If I right click on the name, the only options are "add contact" or "view profile". View profile has a block option but it doesn't remove the contact.

    Please have an option beside every dodgy name to DELETE the person.

  11. prevent having to sign in every time skype is opened

    Prevent having to enter user details and password every time skype loads as the laptop is turned on. Makes for a much smoother and better user experience.

  17. How about a feature that allows us to change the background like Zoom can :-)

    How about a feature that allows us to change the background like Zoom can. Presently there is no feature to do this on the latest version of Skype which is a real bummer.
