Windows Live Messenger ( taskbar problem )

I don't know if there is away to configure this. I use Auto hide for the task bar and I want it to be hidden unless I want to open something or go back to a previous window well this app won't let the task bar hide it's an annoying behavior.

Hope it has a way to change that but I still don't find anything in the configurations.

No this only prevents WLM to start at start up

Uncheck the box as seavixen shows you. You can still start WLM from your Start menu.
Also configure the Notifications Area for the Taskbar to Hide Notifications.

Sorry shellman, go to Control Panel|Notification Area, un check the box indicated below, then configure each item above it as you like. hopefully this will work.

Nope it doesn't appear anything for that there

Thank you so much for your attention! I think WLM is programmed to act like that and every IM in W's does the same.

I Had the samer problem, [FIXED IT.]

Right click on your taskbar , you should see lock the taskbar un select it and select it.

If it doesn't work do it again but click on windows live messenger and try if it works before you re tick it.
