Open multiple instances of Visual Studio

You learn something new every day. But this is something special.

I’ve been trying to start an extra instance of Visual Studio. Whatever I’ve tried it just puts focus on the current instance. So a quick stop at google led me to Stackoverflow and a brilliant solution. Here it goes:

Middle click on the icon in the taskbar. Voila!

So easy and so brilliant that I will probably never forget it.

Now I got so many instances of VS that I’ve to reboot my computer.

P.S. One could hold down shift while clicking on the icon in the taskbar, or right click on the icon in the taskbar and click on the program.
