    How can I sign into Windows Live Messenger and appear offline immediately.
    I've gone to the tools - options but there is nowhere that says sign in
    invisible or appear offline on sign in. This is a new computer with Windows
    Live already installed.

    Hello -

    The way I do this would be to sign off of messenger and go back to the sign
    on screen. There you can choose whatever status you want to appear as at

    There are probably other ways to do this but this is the only one I am aware
    of currently.

  3. Greetings,

    Just sign out (right-click the Messenger icon in the notification area near the clock and
    choose Sign Out), then double click the Messenger icon and choose to sign in as Appear
    Offline. After signing in it will remember this for later sessions.
