Multiple instances of Yahoo Messenger on Windows

It happened in the past that I wanted to run multiple Yahoo ID from the Yahoo client. (might not be working anymore in yahoo version 9 or/and 10)

Open the registry: start / run / type regedit and enter.

Navigate through the registry to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Yahoo\Pager\Test

Create a new DWORD key called ‘Plural’

Add as value ‘1’

Close the registry and now you can start several yahoo windows using a different’s ID.
