****This does not work for me, using Unity 2.6.1 and Windows 7****

****I used a 64 bit PC with Windows Vista SP2. It will be different on other computers but is generally the same.****


If you want to conveniently open up a second Unity3d program follow these steps:

1: Right click on your desktop (or any directory for that matter) and go New --> Shortcut.

2: When the "Create Shortcut" dialog appears click Browse

3: Navigate to the Unity.exe file and click "Okay". The default directory for this on a 64 bit PC is C:\Program Files (x86)\Unity\Editor

4: Click "Next" and type in whatever name you want yours to be, I call mine "Unity Project". Click Finish.

5: Right click on the shortcut you made and go Properties.

  In the "Shortcut" tab under the Target section it will read "C:\Program Files (x86)\Unity\Editor\Unity.exe".
  You will want to change that to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Unity\Editor\Unity.exe" -projectPath

7: Click Okay and when you open up that shortcut it will give you an option to pick what project you want to open.

8: Clear the Error it will give you at the bottom of the screen within Unity3d

EDIT BY FISHMAN92 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ On windows 7, you can also right click on the unity icon on the taskbar and click on 'Unity'. This will open another unity window for you, so you can have 2 projects open at once.
