Multiple GTalk accounts

If you are like me, you will probably be having multiple Gmail accounts. I have a primary gmail account, and a couple of google apps accounts. The issue always cropped up that I could not use gtalk for all the accounts. Fortunately a bit of digging around, and it is quite a simple solution !

Just create a shortcut on the desktop for gtalk. If you have an issue creating the shortcut, navigate via the start menu to gtalk , right click -> copy -> right click on desktop -> paste.

Now right click the shortcut, and chose 'Porperties'.

In Target, add a /nomutex option at the end. E.g. : following is how it looks like in my shortcut.
"C:\Program Files\Google\Google Talk\googletalk.exe" /nomutex

Now, just click on the gtalk shortcut to start a new instance of the talk messenger. Add your gmail and domain accounts.

Have fun !
