How to Send an Instant Message on a Windows Client

    An Instant Message (IM) sends the content of your clipboard to the selected peer, similarly to the Paste and send option in the Chat window.

    Before you begin:

    Ensure that your clipboard contains text that you want to send to another peer.

    This procedure must be executed on the client.

    1. On the client, right-click on the network member that you want to send an IM.
    2. Click Send Quick IM.
    Results: Sending an IM does not open the chat window, it only sends a notification to the peer.
