MSN Explorer: Keep up with new features and important information

When we add new features to MSN, or if we have other important information for our MSN subscribers, the notification icon Notification appears in the status bar, and you may also see a small popup window above the notification area on the taskbar. To open the notification message, click the notification icon or the popup window. To turn notifications on or off:

  1. Click the Help & Settings menu, and then click Settings.

  2. Click Feature Notification, and then click Notification preferences.

  3. Select or clear the Do not display notification notice when a new notification is received check box.

  4. Click Save Changes.


If you have MSN installed on more than one computer, notifications are displayed once on each computer. Notifications aren't shown if you're using MSN in offline mode or as a Guest user.
