How to login to more than one Google Talk Session

Did you ever had the requirement to login to more than one Google accounts using Google Talk simultaneously? I had since our office used Google accounts and I needed to be online in the official chat as well as in my personal account, and I found a way how to do it. So I thouoght it is better to share it with you. This can be achieved by simply passing a parameter while initiating Google Talk (GTalk).
1. If you don't have a shortcut for GTalk create one by actions such as right clicking and clicking on Send To -> Desktop (create shortcut). 2. Right click on top of the created shortcut and click on Properties. 3. Type /nomutex after the googletalk.exe path in the Target field as shown below. 4. Press Ok to save the change.
5. Now start GTalk by double clicking on top of the shortcut. Now you will be able to open up many GTalk sessions and login to different accounts simultaneously.
