Improve MSN/Windows Messenger With Actual Title Buttons
Windows Live Messenger, still commonly referred to by the previous name of MSN Messenger (MSN for short), is an instant messaging client for Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows Mobile. Today MSN/Windows Messenger has a variety of features, such as instant messaging, presence, file transfer, application sharing and whiteboarding. It is very convenient and handy, using it you can quickly exchange messages with your online friends scattered all over the world.
Now you can add new features to any MSN/Windows Messenger window with Actual Title Buttons thus revealing some hidden secret abilities which can enrich your experience of using MSN/Windows Messenger.
Actual Title Buttons allows you adding new handy Minimize Alternatively, Stay Always-on-Top, Roll Up, Make Transparent and other additional buttons to any MSN/Messenger window's title bar. And it also works with any other program as well!
If you want to monitor the activity of your contacts while working with other applications, you can make the MSN/Windows Messenger contact list window on top of other windows. Just click the Stay Always-on-Top button and the contact list will become always accessible and won't be hidden by other windows.
Using it together with the Make Transparent button will enable you to view an application window beneath MSN/Windows Messenger, this will help you by immediately showing you which windows are opened now, and where they are. The transparency effect also forms a unique and very attractive appearance of your desktop, thus revealing its striking beauty.
If you want just to see the contact list and do not need the direct interaction with it we recommend you to click the Ghost button alongside with the above mentioned Stay Always-on-Top and Make Transparent functions. It will force the contact list be on top while all mouse clicks directed at it will bypass that window completely, allowing you to work with other more urgent windows lying beneath.
When you have several message windows open it is usually not easy to manage them and requires some routine manipulations which are often distracting and annoying. Actual Title Buttons presents you several options which may become a true relief in such situations.
While talking to several people you usually have to move the unused conversation window out of your way without closing it: when it becomes idle for some reason or you just need to refer to some data in an Internet browser or a text editor. Actual Title Buttons presents you several options to do it in the most advanced ways:
If you need to change the current size of a message window on-the-fly, which might be useful in various situations, from checking some data in other windows to getting better view to the contents of the message, just right-click the Resize button. You will get access to the wide range of predefined sizes. Or you can specify the custom window dimensions yourself as circumstances require. For example, when you receive a message containing a wide table and need to resize the window horizontally, you choose the predefined size, which is marked as 100%x- in the context menu. Analogically, when you need to resize the window vertically, e.g. when you receive a long message, you choose -x100%.
To position several message windows in the most convenient places on the desktop click the Align button. It provides the automatic horizontal and vertical alignment of Yahoo Messenger or any other window in nine predefined alignment modes (just right-click the button).
If you need to drag-n-drop something (text/photo/picture/document etc.) into a message window just click its Stay Always-on-Top button to prevent the source window from covering it up when you activate the source window by starting the drag-n-drop procedure.
Another way we recommend to quickly insert some information into your message from any external source (text editor, Internet browser, other message window etc.) is using Copy to Clipboard/Paste from Clipboard buttons: switch to a source window, select the desired information, click the Copy to Clipboard button, switch back to your message window, and click the Paste from Clipboard button. Using these buttons to operate with Windows® clipboard is far more quicker than using the commands of the same name in window's Edit menu, especially when using such alternative input device as touch screen (for example, on Tablet PC).
Actual Title Buttons makes your work with MSN/Windows Messenger and other applications extremely simple and convenient. The new buttons are as easy to use as the standard Windows® Minimize/Maximize/Close and they make MSN/Windows Messenger more user-friendly, convenient and stylish. It is an ideal solution if you usually multitask in several applications.
