Windows 7: Messengers, AOL,MSN

Messengers, AOL,MSN

I do not have this issue with my Yahoo, but I do with AOL and MSN.
Its like they have their own windows and they have the icon on the taskbar which is what I want, I just do not want the extra window. I don't see a point to it. I want the extra window to be closed but the Icon to stay on the task bar.

[Off Topic]

As i just use it as windows in the task bar as I'm not used to them in the notification area anymore, why have all these separate messengers when you can have a multi-protocol one? :S ..sorry for being off-topic on your question.

if you just open the bad one and close it making it minimize to the notification area, is that what you are getting at?

I think the BAD icon shows that AOL messenger is actively running & signed in & available. If you sign out & exit it will not show.

I have digsby but it does not support webcam. If you know of one that supports webcam a massive messenger that is I will be more than happy to use that. Although I do have skype now. .. I dunno not everyone has skype though,

And thats the point I do believe. I don't want to have to sign off and exit in order for it go away. I just want the little running aim dude to be there. I guess. Its just annoying is all.

Ahh well that goes for any program, once it's closed and it the notification area and you click to pop it open there will be windows in the taskbar =)

Edit: Trillan supports Webcam but i think it's only the the pro version :P
