Folder Shortcut Parameter - Open in a New Window (Two Questions)
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (up-to-date)
I need to create a shortcut to a folder that opens in a new window instead of re-using the current window. And I do not want to change the way all windows work (I know there is a system setting to make all new windows open in a new window; I don't want that =)
I know you can right click on it and select "Open in a new window", but I would rather just double-click.
Question 2: (Hopefully the answer to Question 1 will solve this one too...)
I also need a shortcut to a folder that will open in a new window even if the folder is already open. Sometimes I need to access several folders within a folder simultaneously and it would be convenient to click the same shortcut and know each time it would open a new window to that folder.
I have already searched Google and these forums for shortcut parameters, target command line arguments, switches, flags, etc. Most results pulled up keyboard shortcuts (Not what I am looking for) or internet browser -new window parameters, or irrelevant topics.

Answer for both questions
Go to the shortcut properties, and in "Target" insert the following:
[location of your explorer.exe file]\explorer.exe /n,[location of your target folder]
So in my computer, if I wanted to make a shortcut to the desktop that opened in a new window, I would type:
