IT will be pushing out an update to Windows PCs on Tuesday, May 30th that could affect the appearance of the Microsoft Lync (Skype for Business) client software. The software functionality is still the same; however, the icons look a bit different.

Screenshots of the old Microsoft Lync client and the new Skype for Business client are below:

Note:  If you get a restart prompt as pictured below, the "Restart now" option will re-launch Lync (not reboot your computer).
