Users are being forced to upgrade to latest skype client, currently v8.25, but from what i can see the user is not able to increase the chat text size. This is troublesome and a backwards step for particularity elderly people using 1080+ screens.
Skype (version 7) for Windows will stop working soon. Update to the new Skype (version 8) for Windows today! Don’t miss out on exceptional HD video calling, 300 MB file transfers, the ability to tag contacts with @mentions and more. Upgrade to the latest version of Skype to seamlessly transfer your sign in information, contacts and chat history. For more details and help, visit this page.
Does anyone have a hack/workaround for the text size? If Microsoft have not built the setting into the initial design I can't imagine they will be adding it anytime soon.
