Do you want to chat or just send a private message to your friend, family member or office mates without using any fancy program? Back in my college days me and my friends uses this trick to talk inside the Computer Lab because we were not allowed to download or use any messenger services during the practical sessions.

3. Now save this as Messenger.bat.

Don’t run it yet… because it will not work. follow these procedures to make it work.

Scroll down and look for messenger. It will open the Messenger Properties.

Set the Startup Type to “Automatic” then press “Start” then OK. No need to restart your computer.
