RE: What's Your Most Used Feature?
Chat Logs, coloured names, tabbed chats. For a while, I had contacts on desktop, but not lately.

RE: Minimise to tray on Win7 (without Vista compatibility mode)
I've had no issues while running WLM in compatibility mode. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones.

RE: Windows 7 with Ultramon
I was also an adamant UltraMon user until my switch to Windows 7. I discovered DisplayFusion, and love it. It's not quite as feature rich as UltraMon, but it works nicely, provides a matching taskbar on alternate monitors, and it's portable. [url=h...

RE: File Backup Software - Win7
I've got my old versoin working so far. Apparently, there's issues with the burning component, so there's no backin gup to CD or DVD, but I don't use it for that. I'll have to give it a few test runs and make sure it works. They are offering no ...

RE: Fences on Windows 7
I'm doing some maintenance on my system, but as soon as that's done, I'll give it a try and let you know. EDIT: I just installed the program, I'm not exhibiting any of the problems you've had so far. I'll keep it running and see.

File Backup Software - Win7
I recently had a system crash and had to re-image my computer. All I had available was Windows 7 RC1 (7100). I've managed to find compatible software for pretty much everything, except file backups. I used to use 2BrightSparks SyncBack, but it's no...

Blocked URLs
Are there workarounds to sending URLs MS doesn't allow through Windows Live Messenger? I'm currently omitting the http:// part so it's sent as plain text, but I'd prefer something clickable. All subdomains offered by no-ip.org's free service see...

RE: Problems in WLM 9
I am having problems with custom emoticons. When adding them, any graphics in PNG format come out extremely small when I use the icons in conversations. Other formats seem fine. Converting the images helps, but some of them are transparency dependent...

RE: External storage
I need the RJ45 to use the drive as NAS (Network Attached Storage), and I need the [b]USB[/b] port to hook it up to an FTA satellite receiver I have to use its PVR function. That way, I can record my shows, and stream them or burn them from any PC o...

RE: Vista Disk Management.
I used to be a Partition Magic junkie, before Symantec bought them out. Since then, I like Paragon. Never really used Acronis stuff, but I plan to look into it. GParted also works quite well, and it's free.

Yahoo COntacts on Desktop
I did several searches trying to find this, but nothing came up. Maybe I'm dense? Anyhoo... I have a few Yahoo contacts on m list, but I can't seem to add them to the desktop (the menu option is grayed out). With one of them, I [i]do[/i] get the op...

General Suggestion
I'm not sure how difficult this is to implement, but I know it's possible. Many skins have custom buddy icons in the contact list, but most of them don't extend those icons to conversation windows or desktop contacts. I don't know about others, b...

Toast placement
IS there any way to customize the location of WLM tost popups? I would like to get all my toasts to go to my second monitor by default (including Plus ones, but one step at a time). Any insight would be welcome.

RE: [Idea] Multiple windows with tabs
Maybe I'm off on a tangent here, but if we're talking about tab (re)organization, what about the ability to change the tab order?

RE: show emote shortcuts
I honestly can't remember if it was Plus! that had this feature, or if I'm simply remembering a time before Messenger displayed the emoticons in the text box. Either way, I think the suggestion is valid

RE: show emote shortcuts
I agree. This is something I thoroughly miss. Especially when I use shortcuts for custom emoticons that include another emoticon's shortcut, and I can't type it because it auto changes before I'm done typing it (I'm not sure I explained that prop...

[Suggestion] Contact Information window - status display
This is more of a nitpick than a suggestion, but I thought I'd bring it up. When using the "Contact Information" right-click menu item, I think it would be useful if the contact's status would be displayed. You can see the last status change in t...

RE: Release [Zero-G Version 2.0.1]
I use Plus! custom notifications to popup whenever a contact goes offline. When using the default Messenger look with no skin, the popup reads "<user> signed out". When I use the Zero-G skin, the contact's user name is readable, but the added info...

[Help] Plus! 4.60 Notifications and Skins
Ever since I upgraded to Plus 4.60, Plus notifications (like contacts going offline, POP3 mail) do not match the skin. I have tried with several skins released since, to no avail. Is this a limitation of the changes in Plus! skinning, or simply that ...

Short WAV files cut off
