Step by step on how to use the messenger


To use Yahoo Messenger, you first need to download it. Here is the link to the latest version which is Yahoo Messenger 10:

http://messenger.yahoo.com/platform/win

If you want to use Chat Rooms, these are available on the US version of Yahoo Messenger 10. Just click on the US flag at the bottom of the download page.

Once downloaded, this is how you can add your contacts and friends:

Click on "Contacts" in the top of the "Messenger" window pane.

Click on "Add a Contact".

You will then see two options. Either you can add somebody from their Messenger ID or email address or you can choose a contact from your address book.

For each contact you add, click on "Next" to take you through the process. An invitation will then be sent to each one you have added. Their names will appear on your Messenger List with a message "Add Request Pending". This message will disappear when the invitation is accepted.

TO IM SOMEONE:

You right click on the contact that you want to IM and then click on " Instant Message". Another box will open up for you to type your message in. When you have finished typing your message, hit the "Send" button on the right of the box you are typing in.

If the person is showing as "online", he will get the message straight away. If the person if "offline", he will receive the message as soon as he signs into Yahoo Messenger.

To use email chat, you need to sign yourself in on your email page. Next to your username, you will see a status which may be set to "Offline" at the moment. Click on it and change your status to "Available".

  2. Click the Phone icon that appears to the right of their name, then you'll hear a phone ringing.
  3. When you're done talking, click Hang Up for Yahoo! Messenger 8 and End Call for Yahoo! Messenger 9.

Method 2: Using the "Actions" menu to use "Call Computer":

  1. Click the Actions menu and select Call Computer.
  2. The "Call Computer" dialog box will appear, choose the appropriate tab:
    • For contacts on your Messenger List, click the My Contacts tab and then select the contact's name.
    • For someone not on your Messenger List, click the Other Contact tab and then enter the contact'sYahoo! ID.
  3. Click OK, then you'll hear a phone ringing.
  4. When you're done talking, click Hang Up for Yahoo! Messenger 8 and End Call for Yahoo! Messenger 9.

Method 3: During an instant message conversation:

  1. Start an instant message conversation with someone.
  2. Click the Call button in the toolbar of your IM window, then you'll hear a phone ringing.
  3. When you're done talking, click Hang Up for Yahoo! Messenger 8 and End Call for Yahoo! Messenger 9.

Important: No 911 or other emergency calling services are available on Yahoo! Messenger at this time.

Please inform anyone using your Yahoo! Messenger that 911 or other emergency calling services are not available, and that they must call 911 or other relevant emergency calling services through their traditional telephone or mobile carrier.

Why does my display image not show to anyone in the I.M. window, but I can see it?


Hi,

This is what you can do, click on the chat box for a particular contact on your IM list. Just click on the arrow below your display image. A drop down menu would appear, left click on "Share my Picture". Once this is done that particular contact would be able to see your display image. You can repeat this for all the contacts on your IM list, this is a simple way to make your image shown to your contacts.
