    Hi

    I recently downloaded the new windows live messenger.

    The only major problem so far I can see is that I can't clearly see the
    number of contacts online per category. It's way too light for my monitor .

    Is there any way to fix it.

  2. Greetings,

    Messenger basically sets its own colour scheme, so there's no direct way to change this
    colour.

    However, it might (I do not know this for certain) that a Messenger Plus skin could be used
    to change this colour. You might consider making a skin request for this over at the Plus
    forum here:

    Or alternatively mess around with some of the ones already made for 2009:

    Of course this will require Messenger Plus Live to be installed
    (http://mirror2.msgpluslive.net/MsgPlusLive-479b.exe).

  3. Just a follow-up since I was in skin-land earlier today.

    The Avalon Concept 2009 skin will let you change the colour of the categories, which also
    changes the number indicator as well:

    The option is in the Skin's options under the backgrounds.
