4) Set browser to default - even if you only have one (don't ask !!)
5) User name - use full address if you have email address other than Yahoo . Otherwise drop "@yahoo.com"

I downloaded and set up yahoo messenger I signed out by accident how do I sign back in


I assume you are accessing Yahoo! Messenger from your Computer. Well, if you've signed out, simply open the Yahoo! Messenger and sign in again using your Yahoo ID and Password. You should have a Yahoo Messenger icon similar to this on your desktop...

When it is opened, you'll see the sign-in box which should look more or less similar to this:

You can also open the Yahoo! Messenger from the Taskbar, double-click the Yahoo!Messenger icon on the taskbar to open it.. (reddened icon below)

If you can't find it on the desktop or on the taskbar, click "Start" > "All Programs" > "Yahoo! Messenger" and open it, or you should see the Yahoo!Messenger icon in the Start Menu Program lists.
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.

I want to sign into yahoo messenger what do i do or what do i go into to do it


I have a few questions, Do you have a Yahoo Account? Have you installed Yahoo! Messenger?
If you have no Yahoo account, open this LINK and sign up for one.

If you haven't yet installed Yahoo! Messenger on your computer, please follow this LINK, and follow the instructions to download and install the latest version of Yahoo! Messenger. Once it's installed, open the Yahoo! Messenger, type in your yahoo username and password to sign/log in to your yahoo messenger account.

If you already have a Yahoo account with username (Yahoo ID) and password, open Yahoo! Messenger and sign in using the username and password.
Let me know if you need further help.

Good Luck.

If you have multiple yahoo ID's and wants to login with more than one yahoo ID at the same time then don't worry, you can login with more than one yahoo ID at the same time using this tip. There is no need to install any other yahoo multi messenger version, you can easily covert your normal yahoo messenger into multi messenger and enjoy your many ID's at the same time.

iii) Here in right side panel, right click to create a new Dword value with name Plural and give value 1

v) For signing in with new YAHOO ID open another messenger(multiple)v open as many messengers    you need.

vi) If you want to disable the multiple messenger option then again open registry editor and change         Plural value 1 to 0.


Thanking you
