How do I hide or show status messages on my AIM Buddy List?

See what your Buddies are up to… or not. It’s up to you!

Here’s how:

1. In the upper-left corner of your Buddy List, click Menu/Options (depending on which version of AIM 7 you're using).

2. Click View.

3. If 'Status Messages' is checked, your Buddies’ status messages will show up in your Buddy List. Check Status Messages by clicking it.




If 'Status Messages' is not checked, your Buddies’ status messages won’t show up in your Buddy List. Click Status Messages to uncheck it.


You’re the master of status now. Show it. Don’t show it. As you wish!
