Skype Call Volume Control

Why, oh dear God why, is there no longer a quick access volume control on version 5.5.0.119?  Prior to this update there was a volume control down where you could click to turn your webcam on.  It's annoying as hell to have to go through options every time to adjust the volume of a call.  I, for one, am constantly adjusting call volume and to not have this nice little tool any longer is just a pain in the butt.  I really hope that Microsoft is going to make Skype as totally craptacular as Window's Live Messenger currently is.

With the newer versions of the Skype clients. The audio volume controls can be accessed by clicking on the bars icon in the call window.

I also am adjusting the volume constantly on conference calls.  Some people sit too far away from their speaker phone, some people speak too loudly.

 

Can you imagine having to continually click through to some other menu every time I just want to bump the volume a little either way?

 

It's too many clicks to get to the volume control, please put it back on the main call screen.

Re: Skype Call Volume Control

Please consider this. It's really frustrating when one person uses a mic on their laptop and the other person uses a headset and you cant individually control their sound. Volume controls for conference calls please!

Well, Microsoft Corporation does not make Skype, Skype Corporation makes Skype. Microsoft did nothing wrong, but Skype is better than W.L.M., I've got to admit.
