December 28, 2013

Client Registry Keys – Part One (General & Personal Tab)

Client Registry Keys – Part Two (Contacts List & Status Tab)

Client Registry Keys – Part Three (My Picture & Phones Tab)

Client Registry Keys – Part Four (Alerts, Persistent Chat & Ringtones and Sounds)

Client Registry Keys – Part Five (Audio Device, Video Device, Call Forwarding, File Saving, Recording & Lync Meetings)

Client Registry Keys – Part Six (IM Tab)


Here is the second post regarding client registry keys.  I will again give you the registry key and client policy (if one exists).  I will continue to update as new features get added.
