New functions disappears

Hi Brink!
Thanks for this tutorial. It was really annoying to have to icons. But instead, I lost something else:
I believe that when I changed the compatibility mode to Vista SP2, the arrows that you can switch between conversations disappeared. This is perhaps a function that comes with Messenger Plus! Live which I am using. Can you see if you have got the same problem? Thanks again.

I think it may be part of the new Windows Live Messenger, but I have been unable to test this yet.

I'm thankful for this solution.

Perhaps the windows team did not anticipate many people changing their taskbar icons back to the XP style (with words attached). Regardless, it seems that many who have not even done so, prefer the system tray icon. It would be prudent for Microsoft to address easily patched problems like this, since an agitated customer is the worst kind of advertisement.

Bless you!

Remove MSN Messenger icon from taskbar?
Is there a way to remove the MSN Messenger icon from the taskbar while remaining logged in to Messenger? I want the program to remain open, but I don't need it sitting in the taskbar all the time. In previous versions of Windows it would minimize to the notification area.

Taskbar notification area icon spacing
Hi all! Is it possible somehow to modify the vertical spacing of the icons in the notification area (systray) ? I set my taskbar height bigger than the default, so my icons are placed into more rows: https://www.sevenforums.com/picture.php?pictureid=1274&albumid=198&dl=1253871737&thumb=1 ...
