    Hey Everyone-

    When I use iChat to chat on AIM all the im windows come up separately...is there any way I can put them all into one window with tabs? So I don't have 10 separate windows open.....? or is there another app I can use to chat on AIM that can do this?

    I am pretty much looking to-do what the new AIM for PC does....just on the mac....aka "tabbing the windows"

    let me know, thx!!!!

    You can use keyboard combo
    COMMAND ~
    to move between the windows

    or perhaps try Mac app: Adium

    You download the app. You install the app. You configure the app's settings inside of the iChat preferences. It's all very elementary, my dear Watson.

    While Chax is all that and a cherry on top, Apple introduced tabbed chatting in iChat 4. Go to the Preferences and choose the "Messages" preference icon at the top.

    Check the "Collect chats into a single window" checkbox and Bob's your uncle.

    Well, for those of us without the fancy Leopard install, Chax has gotta do it for us. :rolleyes: Stupid school loans, stealing all my money.
