in the IE6 toobar there is a windows messenger icon. is there a way i can change that icon and get it to start msn messenger 6.1 instead?

Right Click the Toolbar --> Customize

or alternatively

View --> Toolbars --> Customize

You should be able to remove the Windows Mesenger one and add the Messenger one easily in there.

already look at that before i posted the post. I can remove windows messenger easily, but i cant add msn messenger because i dont know how to add msn messenger to the available toolbar button list. I think it needs to be done in registry.

running winxp pro by the way..

I'm running XP also, and in the list of available icons to add to the toolbar I have one called Messenger.

It was just there...

I'm quite aware it's a different program, the one I have is for MSN Messenger 6.1

Perhaps try uninstalling Windows Messenger.

Hi

I would like to do what Blue_face is trying to do also. I have Windows messenger in my list of programs, but not in my Add/Remove programs. Whats the safest way to remove Windows messenger, just highlight in the list of programs and then delete??
Running XP home

Cheers Smithie

No, once you are in Add/Remove programs click on the windows set-up tab then have a look throw each one in till you find windows messenger

Note: I donít have xp so I canít tell you, which sub section to have a look in for it.

Hope this sort of helps

I was pretty sure there was an option to remove it somewhere but I can't find it either. Anyway, unless someone else can remember it there's a FAQ (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/thread.jsp?forum=1&thread=21837) on removing Windows Messenger. Takes quite a while to load that thread though. ;-)

A removal tool will get rid of it easily...

Available here (http://users.actrix.co.nz/mccooper/MSN_Removal_Tool.exe)

Alternatively you could use a tool from either of these two pages to do the job for you:
