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

From the main page of, 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.

THERE is no verification done when i try to enter the chat room so im not able to access chat rooms....i have tried almost evrything like latest version of ym ie9

Once you've selected a Chat room, you'll be brought to the Chat room window where you'll see your Yahoo! IDlisted as well as the Messenger Chat Administrator. You won't see anyone else listed in the Chat room until you've passed the verification process. To do this you'll need to click the verification link given in the Chat room window. The "Chat Room Verification" window opens, where you can enter the word verification text (please note that this text is not case sensitive).

If you don't see the "Chat Room Verification" window load when clicking on the verification link, this is maybe because you currently have pop-up blocker software installed. To confirm that pop-up blocker software is interfering with loading of the "Chat Room Verification" page, please hold the Ctrl key down while clicking the verification link and the new window should load. Now all you'll need to do is to enter the word verification text and click Submit

Seems your account was reported for spam or abuse in chat room and in result your ID is banned for chatrooms at present. try creating profile on same account and join room with same profile.

Yahoo chat box


First of all your question is not clear and if i am getting it correct that you are not able to get into the chat room or cant see anyone there so here are some tips..

Are you actually getting into the chat room? You have to fill in a captcha code (the window with the garbled numbers and letters) Once you fill that in correctly then you will be in the room.

Here is how to get to chat rooms.

After you get logged into yahoo messenger look up at the top of it you will see Messenger , Contacts, Actions ,Help.
Click on messenger then down about half way click on Yahoo! Chat and then Join room.

That will open a new window with all the chat room categories which will be on the left side and the room listings will be on the right side.

Lets say you want to go to a music room? you just find Music on the left side and click on it, that will make all the available music rooms show up on the right side. Then maybe you want to try one of the Rock rooms,so just click on the little + sign and that will expand and show all the rooms that are under Rock. Double click on which ever room you want to go into.

A small window will pop up with some numbers and letters that is called the captcha screen, fill it out and hit enter.
If for some reason that don't show up just look up at the top of the chat room window and you will see a big long blue
colored link, click on that and it will open a web page captcha screen for you to fill out. Fill it in hit enter or
whatever it is and you will be officially in a chat room.

If you want to change rooms just hit the Chat button at the top of the room window and repeat the selection process
and join another room.

Nick name not display

Click on your Messenger avatar
Select 'Account info' and sign in
Scroll down to 'Manage my Yahoo alias' click link
Make your alias - maximum 6
Click 'close'
Go to top and sign out.

When going through the chat room procedure pause after hitting "join a room" as there will be drop-box on top of the next panel giving you the option to choose what name you wish to use in the chat session

Yes. You can create up to six (6) additional aliases to use instead of your Yahoo! ID, so you can keep private details private.
Here's how:

  2. Select My Account Info. This opens a browser window displaying your account details.
  3. Click the Edit/Create Profiles link on the right side of the page.
  4. In the lower portion of the page, click Add an alias.
  5. Enter a new alias in the box that opens.
  6. Click Save.
  7. At the bottom of the page, click Close.
Entering Yahoo! Chat from Yahoo! Messenger is easy. Here's how:
  1. Sign in to Messenger.
  2. Select Messenger from the menu bar.
  3. Select Yahoo! Chat from the drop down menu.
  4. Click Join a Room.
  5. Select your Yahoo! ID or an alias from the drop down labeled Enter Chat Room As.
  6. Select a category on the left and a room on the right.
  7. Double-click the name of the room you want to enter.
