Multiple instances of Gtalk on the same OS

Submitted by ionut on 06/08/2011

Wouldn't be nice if you could have multiple instances of gtalk running in the same time?

Well it is possible!

Here's the "secret":

1. Right click on your gtalk shortcut and select Properties.

2. On the "Target" textfield you'll find something like "[PATH-TO-APPDATA]\Roaming\Google\Google Talk\googletalk.exe" /startmenu" replace "startmenu" with "nomutex". (

3. Open as many gtalk instances as you want.
