How to Minimize Windows Live Messenger to System Tray in Windows 7

A common issue i have found with the Windows Live Messenger Windows-Live-Messenger-Icon on Windows 7 is that it does with the system tray and remain working from the Taskbar.

However here is a simple workaround that gets it back to the System Tray.

1) Close all intenses of Windows Live Messenger.

2) Go to the Start Menu > All Programs > Windows Live > Right-Click on Windows Live Messenger. Select Properties.

3) Under the Compatibilty tab, tick Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows Vista SP2. Then click OK.

4) Open up Windows Live Messenger. It should now be running from the System Tray.
