Put Windows Messenger back in the “system tray”

Filed under: Windows 7 — solutionsthroughit @ 00:46

A few blog forwards later, and I’ve seen Sean Daniel’s blog post to put the Windows Live Messenger icon back in the system tray.  Great for those that don’t need their IQ reduced by W7’s new taskbar (it’ll probably grow on me, but if you can’t tell, I don’t particularly like it at the moment.

Anyway, the in-a-nutshell is you use Application Compatibility (WinXP SP2) on the msnmsgr.exe application, and voila – back in the system tray.

Here’s the full link to Sean’s blog entry How to get Live Messenger back in the System Tray on Windows 7.
