Windows 7: Aim's buddylist won't close

Aim's buddylist won't close

I downloaded AIM 7 and it works great! The issue I have is a minor one though- I can't close the buddylist. When speaking with someone I usually prefer to have it closed, especially with Window 7's style of stacking windows.

Whenever I close the program it just minimizes it. It even does this if I right click and select 'close'.

The only way to close the buddylist is to end the process using task manager.

Like I said, it isn't a huge issue, but I was curious if this is some sort of Windows 7 feature or what.

I believe Windows Live Messenger does the same thing. Look in Options, there may be a way to disable that.

Aim doesn't seem to have a way to change this in options. Odd..

I believe the way to fix this is aim is right click on the icon on the taskbar and select exit aim.

Heh. Well of course, but in Vista I could close the buddylist without closing AIM

Though once again, not a huge deal.

True not a huge deal but somewhat annoying. I hope AIM sees this as a problem and adds a fix in the next AIM version.

AIM will not see this as a problem, instead, it's actually a selling point to them. Who know the customers better than the people in sit the boardroom and who never use the product.

Digsby is a great replacement and will load your aim (and many others) buddy list.
