What are the changes and benefits of the new interface?

1. Using the one-window interface allows you to focus on what is most important for you. Choose between the Remote Control, Meeting, Computers & Contacs or the Chat and see all relevant information in one window.

Note: TeamViewer will always restart in the tab you had open before closing the software

2. You can re-size the TeamViewer window into the size which is the most comfortable for you. Do you like it smaller or larger? Just choose your own best-fit.
