Manage my Buddy List groups

Managing your buddies in your Buddy List is made easier by Buddy List Groups. You can create multiple groups and group your buddies to easily identify them on your Buddy List. For example, you can have a group for your buddies from college and another for your buddies from work.

How to

Add a new Buddy List group

1. On the Buddy List window, click Setup.

2. The Buddy List Setup window appears. Click Add Group.

3. The Add New Group window appears. Type a name for the group (for example: School Friends), and then click Save.

4. On the Buddy List Setup window, click Add Buddy.

6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for all screen names that you want to add to the group.

Tips: If the screen name of your buddy that you want to add to a group is saved on your Buddy List already, you can move it to your preferred group by dragging and dropping.
