Auto zoom



My video calls on Skype auto zoom.  I am using a PC with Windows 7 and there is nothing I can do, went to settings and can't find a solution, also tried re-downloading and nothing.


Please help, I saw previous posts like this in the forum dating 2011, I can't believe there is no solution yet. (Maybe skype should post earlier versions until the problem is solved???)

Re: Auto zoom

Auto-zoom is not a function or option in Skype.  Rather it's an option that a webcam driver/software may provide.


What type webcam are you using?  You might find an auto-zoom option you can turn off in Skype by clicking on Tools > Options > Video settings > Webcam settings.  If there's no auto-zoom option there, you'll have to try to find the webcam features elsewhere in Windows.
