In regard to your inquiry, the fact that the laptop was build to work with Windows® 8 and there are no drivers for Windows® 10 might be the reason why this type of problem is happening.
Since the graphics controller on the laptop is Intel® HD Graphics 4600, let me give you the latest version of the graphics driver for that graphics controller, so, you can try to un-install the current graphics driver and install this driver manually:
Instructions of how to install the driver manually:
Now, some laptops work with Inbox drivers, those are the drivers that get installed when you install Windows® or when you do a Windows update, some other laptops work only with the drivers from the manufacturer, and there are laptops that accept the drivers from Intel®.
Also, you can try to do a BIOS update on the laptop, specially since the laptop is working with Windows® 10, but in order to do that you just need to get in contact with the manufacturer to get the instructions of how to do the update.

Please let me know the results of trying the steps above.
Any questions, please let me know.
Thank you for the reply.
I did try this latest driver already to no avail.
There is no BIOS update available for my laptop.
Too bad, that things end here.
Consumer caught between Medion, Microsoft and Intel.
While I think this is a bug or settings issue in the Intel HD Graphics 4600 driver for 100%.
Let me apologize for any inconvenience.
Since we tried the Intel® graphics driver 4463, and the problem persists, at this point the best thing to do will be to check with Medion directly, in order to find out if they have a graphics driver for Windows® 10.
Or another option will be to keep using the Microsoft® drivers, maybe as an alternative, you can maintain the laptop connected so you will not have the battery problem.
Any questions, please let me know.
I think I found the solution!
First uninstalled(removed) all the driver versions I had installed(tried) from the Devicemanager - Intel(R) HD graphics 4600 - properties - driver - remove (check mark also driver software) and from the programs under Control Panel, until I had the 'Microsoft Basic Display driver' as the only option and chose this driver.
The driver that works best(no more font freezing in Skype for Business 2016 and in remote desktop sessions to Windows 2012 R2 server) is the one that has the last 4 digits:
The details for this driver are:
Win64_153338.exe - 18.104.22.168.4252 (10.18.10.4254) with date 10-7-2015(july 15th) Download size: 126.912 kb
According to the Intel Driver Utility this driver has version: 22.214.171.12463 but that is wrong.
You can find the download by this link:
After install of this driver(..4252) above the problem is solved, but then Windows 10(or some other process) just auto updates the driver to a version ...4444, and the problem is back again until you uninstall this updated driver again.
To stop the auto update of the driver, Microsoft provides a tool.
The explanation of this tool is on the first link below and the download is on the second link below(on the bottom of the page)
Explanation for stopping the auto driver update:
Thank you very much for providing all those details, and for letting us know the link for the tool that stops the Windows updates from happening, I am sure it will be helpful for us and for all the peers viewing this thread.
It is great to hear that the laptop is working fine now, and you were able to install the driver to fix the problem.
