How do I send files with AIM?

You can transfer files and folders through your instant message (IM) window just as you would with email. There is no limit to the file size, but the transfer rate depends on the speed of your internet connection.

Here's how to IM a file:

1. Double-click your buddy's name on your Buddy List window to open an IM window.



2. On the IM window, in the upper right-hand corner, click Options

3. Click Send File.



3. Browse to select the file that you wish to send, and then click on that file name.

4. Click Open.



5. The file transfers as soon as your buddy accepts your file transfer invitation. You will see a Transfer complete notification.



That's it. You've done it! Easy as pie, right?
