O.P. Windows 7 requests for Messenger Plus
Hi,

I just got Windows 7 and have a few requests.

I don't really like that MSN always shows as a button on the taskbar. I'd prefer it to go into the system tray. Maybe we have to live with this but all my requests are related to this.

1) Option to force MSN to go into the system tray in stead of staying on the taskbar.
2) If you pin MSN to the taskbar, it has a task list with all the standard MSN statusses. I'd like to see the custom statusses here as well. With previous Windows versions, the right click menu of the tray icon had the custom plus statusses too.
3) I also like to see a few items of the Plus! menu's added to the task list (or the menu itself): chat log viewer, event viewer, lock.

Thanks
JeePee

You can have WLM go to the system tray. You go to where you have messenger installed and right click on msnmsgr.exe and select properties. Then click the compatibility tab and select 'Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows Vista'.

Please do not suggest changing the compatibility settings of Messenger, it creates a lot of other internal problems in Messenger.

An option to do that will be added in Messenger Plus! if Microsoft doesn't do it themselves with their next version :).

Well... Maybe status of contacts on the taskbar also~?

Currently, only the status of myself is shown on the taskbar

You run a very old version, version 14 (2009) is already there...

Thanks

I just installed their newest version.
It behaves as described. I guess that is a new 'by design' feature.
But I see your point, let's wait until Windows 7 is in the stores to the general public.

I don't want to because I read about a lot of issues when MSN runs in compatibility mode.
