How do I change my buddy icon?

Are you bored with your generic buddy icon? I don’t blame you. We have so many options to choose from. You can change your buddy icon at any time! We’ll tell you how to select a new icon, but if you want to use a photo to create your icon, check out these instructions: How do I make a photo icon.

Here’s how to change your icon:

1. On the Buddy List window, click Options or Menu (depending on which version of AIM 7 you're using).

2. Click Settings.

3. Click Expressions.

4. Click My Expressions.

5. On the AIM Expressions page, click Browse.

6. Click Icons.

7. Explore our collection by selecting a category from the drop-down menu.

8. Choose a Sub-Category.

9. Click the buddy icon you like best.

10. Click Apply.

That’s it! You can change your icon every day if you like. I encourage you to make a WeeMee Avatar for your icon as well. It’s fun!
