SKYPE For Business – UI BUG – Text size.


Today i discovered a rather funky “bug” in the Skype for Business client.

When the following is true:

  • Operating System is: Windows 7 (32- or 64-bit)
  • Office is 2013
  • Windows Update KB3054791 is installed (included in June 2015 Windows Update)
  • And a user changes the text size in screen preferences to 125%
When the user then makes a call transfer – the screen goes :
Yes thats right – it goes blank 🙂
The also rather funky fix i discovered was changing the DPI to a manual value of 126% instead of 125%
So go to Control Panel, Appearance and Personalization, Display and select “Set custom text size (DPI)”
I apologize for my screendump being in Danish – but I believe you get the picture 🙂
Bug has been submitted to MS – so lets hope for a hotfix – i have replicated the error i 3 environments till now.
Still…. HAPPY SKYPE’ing.
