This topic will cover opening and running more than one instance of Total Office Manager at the same time.


When setup, each time the Total Office Manager desktop icon is double-clicked, a new instance of Total Office Manager will open.


Simply add what we call an argument to the Total Office Manager shortcut target.  In this case, the argument is “/m” (less the quotes).  For instance, edit the Target line in the shortcut properties from

“C:\Program Files\TotalOfficeManager\Total Office Manager.exe”


“C:\Program Files\TotalOfficeManager\Total Office Manager.exe” /m

Notice the /m argument added to the end of the target. Now, each time the user double-clicks the Total Office Manager icon, another instance of Total Office Manager starts


  1.  Right-click on the Total Office Manager desktop icon and select “Properties” from the pop-up menu.
  2. Click the “Shortcut” tab if it is not already active.
  3. At the very end of the text in the Target field, add exactly one space, then add /m.
  4. Click the OK button to save and close the Properties form for the shortcut.
