Keyboard Shortcuts for MSN Messenger

 Keyboard Shortcuts for MSN Messenger

To find out the correct keyboard shortcuts
– Press ALT and the bar will come up.
– Press the underlined letter e.g. ‘f’ is File,‘t’ is Tools
– And then look on the menu to see what shortcut you want.

– On one of the letters of the option you want, there will be an underlined letter

For example:

to change the display picture
-Alt
-t
-y

‘t’ because that is the underlined letter for Tools
‘y’ because that is  the underlined letter for Change My Display Picture

Before you carry on reading, please note that this version is only for the ENGLISH version of msn messenger 7. Other languages may be different. If they are you will have to find them your self using the above method.

 

[note:

– ‘,’ (comma) means you press it after the command before

– ‘;’ (semi-colon) the commands after this symbol are options within that command (the parts in italic and tabbed) e.g. for changing status to online press ALT,f,m,o]
