Tab plug-ins enhance the content and services that you can enjoy while using Yahoo! Messenger. You can use many of the Yahoo! products you already use, like Yahoo! 360°, LAUNCHcast Radio, and Yahoo! Weather.
Tip: If you’re looking for games and other activities to share with your friends, you want to use a conversation plug-in while conversing in the conversation window. To learn how, take a look at Using a Conversation Plug-in.
Add one or more plug-ins if you haven’t already. (Remind me how.)
In the Messenger window, click a plug-in to use it.
The plug-in expands in the plug-in area.
You can now interact with the plug-in.
To display a full view of a plug-in (for those that require more space than the Messenger window allows), click the left-pointing arrow button to the right of the plug-in name.
A separate window opens displaying the full view of the plug-in.
Only one full view can be shown at a time. If you click the arrow button of another plug-in, its full view replaces the one already open.
To close the full view window, click the close button ().
To remove a plug-in from the Messenger view, click the down-pointing arrow and select Close from the menu.
Messenger removes the plug-in from view.
To restore a plug-in to your list, simply start it again. (Remind me how.)
If you don’t see a plug-in that you know you’ve installed and have not removed from your list, click one of the arrow buttons below the list to scroll through all of your plug-ins.
