Emoticons location

Question : I did recall someone asking in Max-IT on where is the location for the MSN Messenger emoticons. Can you please repeat the steps on how to change the file extension to the GIF format?

Answer : The MSN Messenger emoticons are stored as hidden files and furthermore the file format has been masked to the CAT extension. As such the first step is to enable the option to view hidden files. To do this, open Windows Explorer and look for the Folder Options. Next click on the View tab. Select the 'Show hidden files and folders' and untick the 'Hide extensions for known file types'. 

Now browse over to C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Microsoft\MSN Messenger\Data\CustomEmoticons. Since the emoticons have been renamed to CAT files, the images cannot be viewed directly in thumbnail mode on Windows Explorer. However, the image should be viewable in most image editors without having the need to alter the file extension.
