  1. I had not consciously noticed it, but now that you mentioned it the window is much larger.

    I seem to recall a box about 3″ tall in Windows 7, which is fine if you are not using video conferencing. The version on my sister’s Win10 system takes up most of the screen. Yeah, that is annoying.


    • And if I’m doing anything video, I can make it larger as I see fit, so a large minimum is not needed. A large default, I can see, but… well, it’s another breaking of the Big Rule of User Interface Design: DON’T FSCK WITH THE USER INTERFACE. Unless it’s some amazing super-huge win the users have actually been demanding. This case is Extremely Rare.
