Is there a way to do the following?

When I click the imgburn icon on my taskbar, make it open two sessions instead of just one?

It'll open 2 separate instances for me though I don't have it pinned to the taskbar.


Perhaps after you have one instance open right click the icon to open a second instance.

Ack, I should have been more specific, sorry. I know I can do it that way, but I'm just wanting to know if there's a way to make it open two on one click? Just being lazy : )

Here ya go. Depending on where you saved IMgburn, just edit the file to change the location

You can save it to a folder then make a shortcut on the desktop, change the File Icon in the properties pane and drag it to the bar. This will replace your usual ImgBurn Icon Shortcut

They are fun to make and very easy once you know the basics.

All that one is is:
Command ---Location --- Executable

Start ----Program Files ---Imgburn.exe

and then Exit, to close the command. << I dont think this is needed but is good to put in anyway to make sure it always closes the .bat file

Is there a way to make the program open up the two instances side by side instead of on top of each other?
