Once you have Messenger set up on your computer, you can log in and log out by right-clicking the Facebook icon in the your Windows system tray.
Messenger will log you in using your browser and continue delivering messages and notifications after you close your web browser.
Since you don’t need to be in a browser to use the app, you’ll need to have the “Keep me logged in” option checked when using Messenger. This option allows you to stay logged into Facebook even after you close your browser or navigate away from Facebook. As always, if you’re on a shared computer, make sure to log out of Facebook and the Messenger application completely (note that the Exit option will close the app but still keep you logged in).
