Mulitple Logins for Yahoo Messenger

One of the major limitations I’ve found with Yahoo Messenger and Windows Live Messenger is that they allow just single logins. While this provides a bit of security, there are times when you need to login more than one account.

To add multi-user capability:

  • Open notepad or any text editor
  • Copy + Paste the following:
    REGEDIT4
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\yahoo\pager\Test]
    "Plural"=dword:00000001
  • Save the file as Yahoo Multi.reg (Note that you can use any filename, just don’t forget to use *.reg as the extension)
  • Alternatively, you can simply download the file here.
  • Right click the file and choose Merge or simple double click on the file.

Have Something To Say ?

    might as well just use trillian… you lessen the change of screwing up the registry for ym… it even supports aim, msn and irc 🙂

    I agree on Trillian’s usability but File Transfer and PC calls on YM is still quite a must for me and my friends (we’re cheap we know.) XD
