Secret Google Talk parameters
Now here’s something you would like to know! I had compiled all the Google Talk parameters’ list so that I could share it with you everyone, but when I was about to post them a few days ago, somehow I lost the text file in which I had stored them. While going through TechTreak’s posts, I came accross a topic which had these parameters, that refreshed my memory and I have once again collected them to post here.
To use any of these, you’ll first need to create a new Google Talk shotcut (don’t use the default one). Then right-click it and select Properties. In there, look for Target: and add the any of the following in the end of the target to try them out.
To start GTalk in diagonostic mode, use /diag.
To check for a new version, use /checkupdate.
To parameter which is used while upgrading GTalk, is /s Update.
To write GTalk’s settings in the registry, use /register.
To revert all your settings to default, use /factoryreset.
And, to open more than one instance of Google Talk at the same time, use /nomutex.
I hope you liked these. Feel free to add more.
