Starting Windows Messenger

Windows Messenger is an instant messaging program that allows you to exchange instant messages with a designated list of contacts over the Internet. An instant message is an online typewritten conversation in real time between two or more contacts. Instant messages require both parties to be online, and the communication is instantaneous. You and your contacts don't have to be MSN members to use Windows Messenger, but you both need a .NET Passport. After you start Windows Messenger, you sign in to let others online know you are connected. When you're done, you sign out.

Start Windows Messenger and Sign In and Out

Click the Start button, point to All Programs, and then click Windows Messenger.

TIMESAVER Double-click the Windows Messenger icon in the notification area of the taskbar.

If you're not automatically signed in, click the Click Here To Sign In link or click the To Sign In With A Different Account, Click Here link, and then enter your user name and password.

If you want to stay signed in, yet still close Windows Messenger, click the Close button.

When a message arrives, an alert appears. Click the alert to open Windows Messenger.

To sign out, click the File menu, and then click Sign Out.
