    How do I make the messenger's main window (marked with red arrow) to appear next to the other minimized icons running next to the clock (marked with black arrow) ?

    See the atached picture.

    Thanks...:)

    PROTIP: The current workaround for forcing Windows Live Messenger to system tray in Windows 7 is setting the EXE to Windows Vista compatibility mode.

    Thaks for the fast reply @XP1, works as it should now...:D
    BTW. It would have never occurred to me to run it in compatibility mode to force it to system try.

    Just sharing what I know.

    I'm hoping for an official Windows Live Messenger update for Windows 7 soon. :)

    They make an update a couple of weeks ago, but the icon behavior has not changed.
    I think that this is the default setting and will not be changed.
    Maybe they could put an option to change the icon placement, or a patcher (like Apatch) could do the trick.
