The Windows operating system comes with the default chat application, Windows Live Messenger, using which you can instantly send and receive instant messages. Besides the chat messages, you can also have free live voice and video calls. Windows Live Chat application lets you chat in real-time when you and the other user are online. If the Live Messenger is not available on your computer, you can download the application free from the Microsoft official website.
Your Live Messenger also comes with default and easy access tool bars. You can go through the Live Messenger settings through the Menu bar to fix any problem that may arise. The Menu bar also allows you to access advanced settings in the program and fix issues with the program display. Sometimes, problems may occur with the Live Messenger Menu bar itself and you might need to install the latest version of the program to fix the issue.
