Welcome to Seven Forums hashir. Try this:

Right click on your shortcut> Properties> You should find a field with an address like C:\Users\...\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe "http://(your web address)"> Add --new-window before the web address

You would now have

C:\Users\...\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --new-window "http://(your web address)"

Save that and see if it opens a new window instead

Ahhh, ok, create a shortcut to chrome.exe and then modify that:

Navigate to C:\Users\(Your user name)\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\

Right click on chrome.exe and choose Create shortcut> Drag that shortcut to desktop, or wherever you want it> Right click on the shortcut and choose Rename> Name it whatever you want (Facebook)> Right click again and choose Properties> Shortcut tab> In Target field you'd want

C:\Users\(Your user name)\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --new-window "http://www.facebook.com"

You can also change the icon below on same tab if you want. Sorry I can't test as I don't like/use chrome
