    How do i copy an msn smiley

    Can anyone point me where to find the picture files used by msn for smileys. there is a particular smiley i want to copy onto my phone, but have no idea where to find it. I assume its a gif file as it is an animated yellow smiley running round in a circle waving his arms.

    I am sure someone more technical will post a better reply, but here is my limited knowledge,

    if you point to the smiley and right click then save picture as or save image as and save in your picture docs, it should save as gif but if it saves as BIT MAP it wont gig around, you maybe will be able to fiddle around changing the file extension but not sure :thinking:

    hope this helps;-)

    What I tend to do ( as i use different computers a lot) is to back-up all of the msilies etc from msn... go to the following link ----> sherv.net/art…tml and it walks you through it all... saves them to a folder of your choosing, then you can just copy and paste to where ever you wish

    unfortunately, that option is not available when you right click in the smiley window in messenger. i really need to find the file they are located in.
