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


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.

Yahoo 9 wont let me display a picture or change nickname

Go to folder
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles\[your Yahoo ID]\My Icons

It's a list of display images saved by YM. Remember the filename of your desired image.

Open your registry (click Start, Run.., type REGEDIT).

Trace the path
HKEY/CURRENT_USER/Software/Yahoo/pager/profiles/[your Yahoo ID]/FriendIcons

The value of Path should reflect the filename of the current display image in your YM. Change it to reflect the filename of your desired image.

Close the registry.

Restart YM.
