How do I enable Windows Live Messenger or MSN Messenger to show contacts the music I'm currently listening to?

A. To enable your current music to show as your personal message in Messenger perform the following steps:

  1. Select "Options..." from the Tools menu of Messenger.
  2. Select the Personal section.
  3. Select the "Show song information from Windows Media Player as a personal message" and click OK, as the figureshows.

Caution: This will expose your music "taste" to all and should be used with caution, especially if you're a Britney Spears fan.
