Almost every instant messenger (IM) have this notification feature that notifies us whenever a friend comes online. Windows Live Messenger (formerly known as MSN MEssenger) and Yahoo Messenger pops up a small window at the bottom right and show us who has come online.

You must be wondering why doesn’t Google Talk also have this. Well, it does have. But it’s not enabled by default. In this post, I’ll tell you from where you can enable it so that you don’t have to open he GTalk window to see who is online or not.

Just follow the steps below and you will enable it in no time.

I hope this trick has been of some use to you.
