minusplus2. Custom (non-standard) Hotkeys
Important: THESE ARE NOT STANDARD HOTKEYS. You have to set them up yourself and this is a suggested layout. Per default there are only 3 default shortcuts which are poorly designed. Skype Shortcuts will overwrite Standard Windows Shortcuts, using Ctrl+Shift+Alt across all Skype functions seems to be safe.
