Has anyone asked you to join a chat channel or would you like to create your own? Here I will go though setting up a channel and then if you prefer, creating a Tab on your chat window for that channel.
-Follow this instuctions step by step
-RIGHT click top edge (Title Bar) of the chat window
-A "Chat Configuation" menu will appear
First we will join / create a channel
-In that menu click the "Channels" tab at the top of the "Chat Configuration" menu window
-In the top "Join/Create" field type <Channel Name>
-If you are creating a new channel, Click the "create" button to the right of the "Join/Create field. NOTE: if the channel name already exsists the button label will change to "Join"
-If you are joining an existing channel, Click the "Join" button at the bottom of the menu or to the right of the "Join/Create" field
-You will now be able to select your new channel
-If you DO NOT wish to create a new tab for your new channel, you may now close the "Chat Configuation" menu, otherwise leave it open.
Second we will create a Tab on your chat window for your new channel
-Click the "Tabs" tab at the top of the "Chat Configuration" menu window
-In the "Tab Name" field type <Tab Name>
-Now at the top of your chat window click the <Tab Name> tab
-BE SURE THAT YOUR NEW <Tab Name> appears in the "Tab Name" field of the "Chat Configuration" menu window NOTE: You may also use the right/left selector arrows to the right of the "Tab Name" field
-Uncheck everything but your <Channel Name> (and anything else you would like to see in your new tab)and select the color you want for your new <Channel Name>
-Close the menu window
-Now with the <Tab Name> tab selected you can set the selector in the lower left corner to your new <Channel Name>
