How to Change a Yahoo ID Name for a Chat Room |

INSTRUCTIONAL STEP TO FOLLOW
From the main page of Yahoo.com, click on the "More Yahoo! Services" option at the left side of the screen. In the pop-up screen, click on the"Chat" option. The following page will direct you to a place where you can download Yahoo! Messenger. Make sure you download the correct version that is compatible with your operating system, and that youclosely follow the appropriate steps for installing the chatting tool. Wait to be asked to enter your Yahoo! ID and password in order to sign on.You may already have a Yahoo! ID if you have previously signed up for a Yahoo! service. The majority of users typically have a Yahoo! ID from using Yahoo! Mail. You can sign on with the same user ID and password you use for your Yahoo! Mail if you would like. But keep in mind that members of a chat room might have easier access to finding out who you are. The safest and best option is to create an alternative ID name and password. Instead of signing into Yahoo! Messenger with the user ID you already have,click on the "Create Yahoo! ID" option at the bottom the Yahoo!Messenger page. A new screen should appear that prompts you to create an entirely new user ID. However, this time, only include the minimal information needed to create a user ID. For example, you do not need to include your alternative email. When finished, click on "Create MyAccount."Now that you have an alternate Yahoo! ID, only use your newly created user ID for when you enter a chat room. You can still sign onto Yahoo!Messenger using your normal Yahoo! ID to chat with trusted friends.Once you are signed on with your normal Yahoo! ID, you can switch to your alternate user ID before entering chat rooms. The following, final step will help you with this simple process. Clickon "Profile" in the top toolbar, then click on "My Profiles." Now clickon "Edit Profiles." You will be taken to your normal Yahoo! profile.Click on "Account Info" in the top, right-hand corner of the page.Click on "Edit/Create Aliases" on the right-hand side of the page. You can now add the new Yahoo! ID you have created. Once this is complete,go back to Yahoo! Messenger and click on "Join a Yahoo! Chat Room" frothe "File" option in top toolbar. At the top of the chat-room pop-up,you now have the option to switch your Yahoo! ID before entering a room.

I could not go back to my yahoo classic mail.


Login to your yahoo! mail account.

Click "help" on the upper left of the screen.

Then Choose "Leave the main preview"

It will ask you for a feedback, but you can just choose "other" and click continue.

Now you are on Yahoo! Mail classic again!

Hope this helped. =) Please rate my answer if it helped you.

I am unable to open or send any emails. Where has the tab gone for classical yahoo which is normally at the top of yahoo's home page.


This generally happens when you upgrade to IE8. Try this

1) Open Internet explorer
2) Click on tools/General
3) Delete cookies then delete files
4) click OK
5) Then log onto your email.
6) In the upper left side of your page you should see Yahoo Classic (small blue lettering) OR Click "Options" on the top right corner of the screen and you must get the option to switch back to classic
7) Click on it, wait and it should work

In case you are unable to follow step 6 in IE, try using any other browser, i.e. Firefox
