We just updated to the latest release with the next colour scheme, but the DPI scaling issue reamins when moving between screens. 

Version is 16.0.7329.1022

Hi TRent,

this was discussed in https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Skype-for-Business-IT-Pro/DPI-scaling-in-Windows-Client/m-p/1... where people report that the issue has been resolved for them running 16.0.7329.1017. 

 

What version of Windows 10 are you using? https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/askcore/2016/08/16/display-scaling-changes-for-the-windows-10-an... suggestes that the Anniversary Update has some required fixes.

 

hth,

I'm on 1607

Any comments why the new color scheme is removed from the latest c2r Version? Greets Jörg

This change was made to increase accessibility.

If you ask me, I think this should be a setting instead of forcing everyone to use the accessible UI.

@Kamal Mikhail i know this blog article, and i've used the new UI for a few days, but a with the latest build, it's removed and the old UI is available again.

Tom Arbuthnot mentioned this also in his updated article:

Fix was:

 

1. Change the LYNC.EXE.MANIFEST file, set to True/PM
2. In regedit, find the lync.exe HIGHDPIAWARE key in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers and delete it.
3. Restart Skype
