The program starts in Talk mode. If you don't want to talk simply press the Hide button (or Ctrl-H) and the application will go to the task bar as a Tray Icon , waiting for personal or general chat messages.

Talk Mode
In this mode you can:
- Talk with all users - Select [All Users] bar, write a message and press Enter.
- Talk with a specific user - Select a specific user from Users List or clicking on Hyperlink, write a message and press Enter.
- See specific messages from a single user - All messages beginning with [From] are messages for you from a specific user.
- See messages posted to all users
- Receive text from users.

Listen Mode
- Self notifying messages - When a user send to you a personal message the talk window will be activated in Talk Mode. You can see the message and respond. After that, you can go back in Listen Mode pressing Hide.
- Public Messages - When a public message arrives the Tray Icon on task bar will blink. If you want to see the messages double-click on application Tray Icon and you will enter in Talk Mode.
