    This has become a real nuisance. My green icon disappears from the service tray no almost one a day. It's really the icon it-self that disappears because the space remains, and the other icons (busy, away, do not disturb ...) will show but never the green one. I did not find and so far how to get it back except by quitting skype and restating it. Is this something specific to my computer or a bug in Skype that has been so often reported that nobody does it anymore and that Microsoft does not care to correct ?

    Here also, I'm surprised by the apparent lack of support. Am I making a mistake and to I not see what the others do. The black window mow has a small symbol on the bottom right that sends you to larger windows where you can share your screen. But the symbol in the small black window is not very intuitive and does not tell clearly what it does. Can this be improved and more buttons / links to other functions be added to this small black windows ?

    This idea of mine does **** seem very popular. Yet, I think it would be useful. We receive a lot of files and to have them all piling automatically in a directory somewhere in the c:drive is a problem (we have several machines with relatively small SSD c:\drive for Windows and with the data in a large D: drive. This separates nicely the programs from the data but creates a problem is too much downloaded material goes to the c:\ drive. It would be nice if we could decide where to save the file when it comes in. You could have a default folder so that people not willing to save their file when it comes would find them in this default folder.

    Yes, this is a problem... The window where you can write is very small... Can you make it expandable (i.e increasing it with the mouse so that it can show at least 5 to 10 lines of text...) ?

    Please, make Skype 8 to sound (through the computer speakers, not the headphone) when a message comes in. Today (with Skype 8.37), I do not hear anything ...and I miss incoming messages... Amazingly, it vibrates on my Skype for Android on my cell phone... So, this is how I know that a message has arrived... but it forces me to have my cell phone on... It would be better if the computer would also makes a sound...

    Thank you all for sharing your ideas! We have a lot of great feedback from you and we really appreciate it! We love the passion!

    Thanks for joining our community and helping improve Skype!

    - Petr

    We hear you. We love Skype version 7 too. We’re working to build the Skype experience you’ve come to depend on for so long on today’s platforms for today’s user. It would be impossible to bring back the full catalog of features available in previous versions of Skype all at once, our engineering systems just don’t work that way. We are committed to evolving the current Skype experience to match your needs over time. As we release new Skype features, we’ll update this site. You can also follow @Skype and @SkypeInsider on Twitter for the latest news too.
    Thank you all for your feedback.

    Dear Petr,
    If you are unable to have a Skype 8 that is at least as good as Skype 7, why did you try to kill Skype 7 in the first place ? KEEP Skype 7 working until Skype 8 is as good as Skype 7... This seems obvious, does it not ?

    Hi,
    Most users of Skype 7 dislike Skype 8 (multiple reasons), which shows that this "upgrade" will probably never work as it should. It is time to (i) leave Skype 7 working and (ii) prepare a new Skype 9 that will maintain all the features of Skype 7 and implement what is new and useful in Skype 8... Until this is done, keep Skype 7 working.

    Thank you for reacting to this. You asked which features/facilities of Skype 7 should be implemented in Skype 8. The answer is simple: ALL ! If Skype 8 is to be a real upgrade, it should contain al teal all the facilities/features of Skype 7. You can put more, but you CANNOT put less... Is this clear enough ?

    The comment show hereunder is absolutely correct. The current version 8 is unsatisfactory because it is not adapted to a serious use of Skype. Keep version 7 as long as version 8 is not at least as good and as configurable as version 7. Note that requirements for a desktop version can be much greater than for a cell-phone version (which can be simpler).
