    This does NOT change the font size in skype: the fonts are as small as ever. What it DOES change is the font used in a TINY FRACTION of Skype: The Instant Messaging (IM) section.

    what you suggest does not change the text in contact listings, I cannot see the names unless I am 1 foot away from screen, I guess the person who put this online could not see either ?

    Amazing how people are consistently not answering the question of increasing the font in Skype. We got the how to increase the font size in the IM BOX… got it… NOW please, the font size in all of Skype, without changing the resolution of your whole system graphics card!! We can zoom into all windows on the computer and on the internet… EXCEPT Skype.

    The full screen version for Windows 8 works differently.
