One of the limitations in GTalk is, we can’t do conference talk in GTalk. This always force the users to use Yahoo. I still wonder why don’t Gtalk support conference talk?
There is a way to do a conference in GTalk. This can be achieved by launching multiple instances of GTalk. GTalk allows us to launch multiple GTalk instances (this is not being supported by yahoo). Do the following to get multiple instances.

- On the contextual menu, click on Properties.
- Go to Shortcut tab on Properties window.
- On the Target textbox, add in the /nomutex to the end of the line so that it looks like the following. “c:\program files\google\google talk\googletalk.exe” /nomutex or you can simply copy and paste the above syntax and replace the original.
- Click on OK.
Way 2: To create a new shortcut for Google Talk
- Right-click on the desktop or anywhere you want to place the GTalk shortcut.
- Select New on the right click context menu.
- Then select Shortcut.
- Copy and paste the following line to the text box when prompted to type the location of the item: “c:\program files\google\google talk\googletalk.exe” /nomutex
