Maximizing window on multiple monitors with different resolutions

The problem has been there for quite a while now hoping that it gets fixed in an update.

 

So I have multiple monitors one at 1920x1080 and the other at 1280x1024. When I maximize the skype window on the smaller resolution monitor it seems to maximize to the size of the 1920x1080, thus a big part of the window not being visible when it is maximized.

 

Anyone else with this problem or know a fix for this?

Well I played around with settings on Skype itself, apparently changing the window style from 'Skype' to 'Windows' solved the problem. Not sure why it happens when I set it to 'Skype' but as long as its fixed I'm fine.

Re: Maximizing window on multiple monitors with different resolutions

I have the same configuation as you...one 1280x1024 monitor and one 1920x1080.  If I have Skype open on the smaller display and select full screen it goes to full screen in that monitor's resolution.  I can't duplicate your problem.

 

I know that's not much help but I think the issue is somehow with your diplay adapter's configuration, or drivers, or....????  But I don't think it's a Skype problem.

 

Display adapater here:  nVidia GeoForce 9800GT

Re: Maximizing window on multiple monitors with different resolutions

Using a GTX 560 Ti here. The smaller screen is a VGA monitor while the larger screen is a DVI monitor. I'll try messing around with the Nvidia settings to figure something out. Thanks for the reply =)
