I've installed advanced setting and tried to get the text size with my laptop's high definition screen larger, what I have ended up with is a mix of some large text which does not properly fit onto windows and a small cursor and icons on the top panel. As far as I'm aware it is the best set up for larger icons with a high defintion screen.

However when I'm using Skype the window that shows my own webcam is so small (postage stamp size) that it is almost unusable. The text conversation window is also far too small for me personally but this question is specifically if anyone knows of a way of increasing the Skype window that displays my own webcam (rather than the individual I'm talking to).
