Issue

Skype or Skype for Business display might be very large or very small, and the text might be blurry if you connect your high resolution laptop or tablet to an external monitor with a lower resolution. This happens because Skype and Skype for Business do not yet support an external monitor with a different resolution where you have more than one monitor at a different resolution.

Status: Fixed

This issue has been resolved in build 16.0.7369.2024. To update Office, go to File > Account > Update Options >Update Now
