How do I change my Enhanced IM settings?

To get to the Enhanced IM settings page, sign in to AIM, click Options at the top of your Buddy List, then select Settings. On the left, click Enhanced IM to view the window below. For more information on each option, reference the numbers below.


1. Check the Video Chat checkbox to auto-accept Video Chat invitations. If someone sends you a Video Chat invitation, your Video Chat window will automatically open and connect to that buddy.

2. Check the Audio Chat checkbox to auto-accept Audio Chat invitations. If someone sends you an Audio Chat invitation, your Audio Chat window will automatically open and connect to that buddy.

3. Check the File Transfers checkbox to auto-accept any file transfers. If someone sends you a file through your IM window, you'll automatically accept and begin downloading the file.

4. Check the Picture Share checkbox to auto-accept any picture sharing. If someone wants to share a picture through your IM window, you'll automatically accept and have it appear.

5. Do you want to see what your buddy is typing (as it is being typed) right in your IM window? Check the Real-Time IM checkbox to automatically accept Real-Time IM invitations from your buddies.

6. Choose a directory for your IM File Transfers to be sent. Click Browse and select the destination you prefer. The Directory to put files I receive box displays the location where the files will be downloaded.

Once you've selected your desired settings, be sure to click Save.
