Hi,

But unfortunately, I am not able to find live messenger icon anywhere in the system tray. The live messenger icon is missing in my system tray.....can anyone help

Re: Live Messenger icon missing in system tray

  • First, exit Windows Live Messenger completely - To do this, right-click on WLM button/icon on Taskbar and select Exit.
  • Go to Start and locate WLM shortcut.
  • Go to Compatibility tab. Tick the check box for Run this program in compatibility mode for under “Compatibility Mode”, and then select your Windows from the drop down list.
  • Click OK.
  • Run Windows Live Messenger.

Try this...
  • Open Task Manager by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del
  • Click on "Processes" tab
  • Highlight the "Explorer" process
  • Click "End Process" -- This will stop your desktop.
  • Click on "Applications" tab
  • Click "New Task"
  • Type "Explorer" and click OK. This will restart the explorer which manages the desktop.

Hopefully, the icon should return....all the best
