  • On the Registry Editor, from the left pane, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_ USER > Software > yahoo > pager > Test.
  • On the right pane of the window, right click and select New > Dword value.
  • Name it as Plural.
  • Double click Plural and give a decimal value of 1.
  • You are almost done. Open your Yahoo Messenger client and login with your ID. After logging in, again open another Yahoo Messenger client and you will be able to login to another Yahoo ID.
