How to use Yahoo! Messenger from Yahoo! Toolbar in Internet Explorer
If you have Yahoo! Messenger 7.0 or higher and use Yahoo! Toolbar in Internet Explorer, you can do the following right from your toolbar:
- Change your Messenger status
- Access your contact list
- Receive voice mail alerts
- Share web page information
To access these functions, click the down-arrow button to the right of the Messenger App on your toolbar to open the Messenger menu.
If you have Yahoo! Messenger installed, but don't have the Messenger app on your toolbar, you can add it to your Yahoo! Toolbar now (this requires sign-in).
Note: If you sign in to Yahoo! Toolbar with one Yahoo! ID, and sign into Yahoo! Messenger with a different ID, the Messenger app on your toolbar reflects your ID on Yahoo! Messenger.
