Using msn or something similar

  ponytail 19:00 12 Nov 2013

When I had XP on my desk top I used to use MSN for live chats but not sure what to use now as I have windows 7.Can someone advise on a similar program to MSN that I can use for having a live chat.I used it to chat with my brother in Spain and my cousin in Australia and found it very handy.

Use Skype which does video calls, normal calls and chat - instant messaging.

Instant messaging and file sharing.

Skype has a good help system Skype help. Suggest you read that first. People you want to chat to also have to have a Skype username/account.
