Hi, why not add the msn toolbar itself, you will then have quick access to hotmail, msn msgr etc.

On my IE I right-clicked on the windows msgr icon and then ticked msn to get the full toolbar.

If i right click on the msn icon nothing happens and i dont get any options but the standard custonmise IE ones,i have Yahoo and google tool bars already so would really just like the icon to work to open msn,lol.

I have both installed but use MSN7 more than windows MSN.

Me again - just noticed that if I right-click on any clear part of IE toolbar I get the options as mentioned in my 1st response above, not just on the WinMsgr icon.

The options I get are - StandardButtons/AddressBar/Links/MSN/DAPBar/AskJeevesBar - under which is shown Lock the Toolbars and Customize.

or do you have the MSN option in your IE toolbars View dropdown menu?
