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.

    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.
