All you need is just a YM application installed on your PC. Then :

  • Close your YM app
  • Open the Registry Editor, click on Start Menu, Run…, type “regedit” (without quote), and press Enter.
  • Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Yahoo -> Pager -> Test
  • Add a Reg DWORD named Plural, right-click on the right-side tab, click New -> DWORD Value – name it with “Plural” (without quote)
  • Activate the DWORD, double-click Plural, and type “1” (without quote) as Value
  • Close the Registry Editor and the open YM up again


Work perfectly in YM 8.1 and 9 beta. If necessary, try to restart Windows after editing the Registry Editor.
