Turn on handwriting in Windows Live Messenger, for a personal touch.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:01 >> Hi, I'm Molly Wood from CNET.com and here's a quick tip for personalizing your Windows Live messages. Now, everybody says that modern technology makes them yearn for the good old days when people sent old-fashioned letters. Well, here's how to hand write your instant messages. Check it out. Open up a chat window here, and now switch to handwriting mode by pressing this little button with the pen on it down here on the bottom of the window. Now choose the pen tip size and ink color, believe me, you're going to want to chose fine and then begin just scrolling your message with the sincerity only delivered by handwriting. It's something you might want to use kind of sparingly unless you've got, say, a tablet but it does add that personal touch. For CNET.com, I'm Molly Wood. ^M00:00:46 [ Music ]
