    How to chat in Yahoo chatrooms

    From the Messenger menu near the top, select Yahoo! Chat and Join a Room.

    Pick the Yahoo! ID you want to display in the chat room* and then select the room you want to join.

    You can browse by category to bring up the room you want to enter.

    Click the Go to Room button near the bottom of the window.

    When the chatroom window opens, you will undergo a verification process to get into Yahoo chatrooms.

    (This has been setup by Yahoo to prevent automated bots and spammers to give us all REAL people enjoyment in chatting.)

    the browser window will open and you will see the following message --

    (To help prevent spam and bots from disrupting your Yahoo! chat experience, please click here to verify your account (this link will open a new web browser window).

    Underneath this message is the Captcha. (blue link) that you need to click ONCE.

    When a new web browser opens, the following message appears -

    "To join the chatroom please complete the following verification." and "Please enter the characters shown above"

    Type in the characters in the box and then click submit.

    After a few seconds the chatroom window will now open


    Get in on the conversation! It works just like an instant message - type your comments in a click send.

    Since they don't provide categories for EVERY problem or question type, pick one that fits as close as possible to your problem. Make sure to go into a lot of detail when describing your problem or asking a question:
