Resize chat section in new version of Skype

I just downloaded the new version of Skype and I can't seem to resize the chat portion in the call/chat UI mode. I need to make the chat section much more bigger so I can see it more clearly. Also, I heard I can make the chat full-screen - how can I do that?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If this is for Skype 8 then there is a work around to resize the window.


Focus the call

Resize the entire window so it can’t be any smaller

Hit the “chat bubble” button in the lower left corner

Resize window to how you want to have it again
And now the chat is full-screen.

If you switch to another contact in your contact’s list? You have to repeat this workaround. Same with the “Go to Call” button in the top-right corner, so don’t press it.

    What version of Skype the one for business or another version? Microsoft has a link addressing the window sizing issue here.

    What Windows version is there like Windows 7/ 8.1 or 10? Adjust the screen resolution may help. Or in the Skype session, you can adjust IM Text Size from Menu.

    Is it even Windows? I use to versions of Skype on two different platforms -- neither is Windows. (Hmmm... maybe three; I haven't checked the third platform to see if it's installed.)

    (STILL no way to edit posts?) Should be "...two versions...".
