Can someone (Jonathan?) give me the registry edit for changing the windows
messenger icon text on the IE6 toolbar - verson 5.1 (5.1.0639) - I want it
to read 'Messenger' and not 'Windows Messenger' which causes the button to
drop off the end of the toolbar !!

Hi,

Sure, close all your IE Windows, then click Start, then Run, type "regedit" and click OK.

Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Extensions. Click the +
next to the Extensions key (looks like a folder if you're not familiar with registry editing
in this manner), and go through each GUID [like {FB5F1910-F110...}] until you get to the
Messenger one. You'll know it's the Messenger one because the Exec and other string data
will point to \Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe.

After you've found it, double-click the ButtonText string, replace it with Messenger, click
OK and exit the editor. Then just reopen IE and you should see the change immediately (no
reboot required).
