I have just upgraded to windows live messenger 2011. Under the old Live Messenger when a contact was on line it showed there contact name in Green. Under the new Windows Live 2011 the contact is just shown as black and white. Could any one let me know if its possible to change the colour. Many thanks

Many thanks TonyV for your help is there any way you could give me more information on how to get to View tab, When using Windows live messenger the view tab is missing.

I have to say I should read the messages better! I read it as Windows Live Mail, and my instructions were for that! Sorry. In fact, I do not use the Mesenger system as I have never had the need for it.

Hope you manage to get it sorted.
