What About NetMeeting?

As I mentioned at the beginning of this chapter, Messenger is meant as a replacement for Microsoft’s previous chat/voice/video conferencing program called NetMeeting. If you or your organization prefers to use NetMeeting, you’ll be happy to know that even though it doesn’t appear on the Start menu, it’s still present on your Windows XP computer. (The Whiteboard and Application Sharing features in Messenger use parts of NetMeeting, in fact.) If you want to continue to use NetMeeting, just follow these steps to create a shortcut for it:

1.
Right-click on the desktop and select New, Shortcut.

2.
Click the Browse button, and browse in turn into My Computer, the drive containing Windows, the Program Files folder, and the NetMeeting folder. Select conf, click OK, and then click Next.

3.
Enter “NetMeeting” as the name of the shortcut and click Finish. A NetMeeting shortcut will appear on your desktop.

4.
You can drag the shortcut from your desktop to your Quick Launch bar, or into your Start Menu. I suggest that you drag it to the Start button and hold it there. When the Start Menu opens, drag it to All Programs, Accessories, and Communication before letting it go.
