Has anyone else had a problem with reducing the height of the Skype window in DEV Channel Build 22648.1000.

Dual Boot System with Dual Monitors (one 27" 2nd 24") that necessitate reducing the height of the Skype window for a good fit on Monitor 2.

When I try to reduce the height when Skype is open on either monitor, I cannot. The double headed arrow shows up, indicating I should be able to do what I need, but it just doesn't work. Neither from the top or bottom of the window.

I've filed feedback, but couldn't figure out how to link to it. Feedback doesn't work like it used to. :(

Skype seems to resize fine on this build for me. There is however a minimum height limit. For me it is 653pixels including all the borders.

This means that on a FHD display you can not arrange Skype in a 2 x 2 window layout.

Hope this helps.

Find the share icon on the Feedback. I've just created a sample. Hope that helps.
