Windows 7: Shortcut Targets

13 Dec 2009   #1

Shortcut Targets


In Vista I was able to create multiple targets for a shortcut. My example will be Battlefield 2. I'd have the shortcut pinned to the start menu, or wherever, and right clicking I was able to customise the choices of targets I could run on that shortcut. Play being default, which ran the bf2.exe with no command line options.

So I created my own, all under one shortcut.

- Full Screen, menu skip, auto log in etc.
- Windowed, menu skip, auto log in etc.

And so on.

Since upgrading to 7 I can't seem to locate this option and there doesn't appear to be a generic term for it (that I can find) so searching forums / internet is not really much help.

Hoping someone here can...

p.s. It may have been limited to games in the games folder, but, still, the option isn't available. If I could find a screenshot, I'd happily post to give you an idea of what I meant, but I guess those who know, will know.


"Customize Play menu items for this game". Definitely in Vista's game browser but not in 7. -- search for string ID 10096.
