4 Ways to Run Two or More Gtalk Simultaneously

We happen to have more than one Email Ids and sometimes more than one Gmail Id. So logging out from one account and login to the other is very troublesome. If you want to run Gtalk for two or more same Gmail Ids simultaneously, you can easily do that.

There are many ways of doing that (you maybe knowing some) but here is a list of four easier ways. It was notified by one of our readers who was facing problem while using Gtalk for 2 Gmail accounts, so here goes the solution.


First method:
•    Using Pidgin
Pidgin is an easy to use and free chat client used by millions. Connect to AIM, MSN, Yahoo, and more chat networks all at once.
Pidgin has hell lots of options and supports many IM clients. You should try that.

Second method:
•    Using Digsby
Digsby is a multiprotocol IM client that lets you chat with all your friends on AIM, MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, Google Talk, and Jabber with one simple to manage buddy list.
You can even switch to offline or invisible modes, an advantage currently not available in the standard Google Talk client.

Third method:
•    Replace the target of Gtalk shortcut icon by this line
“C:\Program Files\Google\Google Talk\googletalk.exe” /nomutex

Click OK.

Fourth method:
•    Use Google Labs edition along with standard Gtalk client.
Labs edition adds more functionalities to the Gtalk.

  1. Hi,

    yes, same problem. My GTalk, Messenger as well as Inbox chat is also blocked by our Head Office system… please extend your guidance.


  2. Your 3rd methos is not working. It is not accepting changed target. Please publish detailed way of doing it.

  3. I tried the same thing and found that why you were facing the error, after pasting the code check the whole code should be correct (i saw C:\C:\ twice).
    Better would be to write the whole code in a new shortcut (right click and select new shortcut) and rename it to gtalk later.
    let me know…

  4. Help full options. The third option is easy. There is not required any other software to install in your system. Just create the shortcut and change the “startup” with “nomutex” and press enter. Its easy. Thanks

  5. all of these websites let me go to them but my shools computer doesnt have javascript and ths wat all of these need. is there anything tht doesnt need javascript??

  6. your third option is good but while i was checking for gtalk properties there i did not get any option like shortcut…
    so please help me out….
