    If you’re experiencing issues and would like to report them, or you just want to share some feedback about the app, Skype has a really simple way of doing this.

    1. Open the Skype app and sign in.
    2. Select the menu button and select Settings, then select Logging.
    3. Switch Diagnostic and error reports to On, then restart the app.
    4. Select the menu button and select Send feedback. The Feedback Hub app launches.
    5. You need to be signed in to a Microsoft account to use this app. If you're not signed in yet, sign in using your Microsoft or Skype account, then go back to the Skype app and select Send feedback again.
    6. In the Feedback Hub, select the plus button or Add new feedback:

    7. Fill out the details requested.
    8. Recreate the problem is optional, but if you have marked the feedback as a problem and you can consistently see and reproduce this issue, this section will help us to get specific logs to understand the root cause of the issue:
      • Select Start capture.
      • Open the Skype app and try to recreate the problem.
      • Go back to the Feedback Hub and select Stop capture.
      • Add some screenshots if you think they would be useful.
    9. Select Submit.

    With the latest version of Skype for Windows desktop, you can send us your usability feedback so that we can analyze it and take action to improve your Skype experience.
