    ·         (November 3, 2016) Microsoft has released KB3127915 which is an update for Office 2013 (KB3127915).

    This article describes update KB3127915 for Microsoft Office 2013, which was released on November 1, 2016. This update also applies to Office Home and Student 2013 RT. This update has a prerequisite.

    This update fixes the following issues:

    Enables Microsoft Skype for Business client to scale across monitors that are set to different DPIs.

    Note If this update doesn't work as expected, you should delete a registry key under HKEY_CURRENT_USER \Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers. The key has a name with the full path of lync.exe and a value of HIGHDPIAWARE.
    After you delete the registry key, you must restart Skype for Business to make sure that this fix functions correctly.

    Assume that you use a laptop in a docking station, and then you undock it. In this situation, the UI and font (for Skype for Business client) don't scale correctly. Base on the DPI settings, they may appear very large or very small.
