Shortcut arguments - How do find them?

Hello

I've googled around the web and this forum without much luck... I'm tryin to find a list of the arguments possible of use when creating shortcuts.

I know each application will have it's own list, but i believe there's also a set of arguments for windows functions (like force focus to foreground or background).

The one I'm looking for is focus, so anyone who knows that it's already VERY helpfull (but if anyone knows a list, it would be great since i could check it and let my imagination get wild )

Thanks in forward!

when you create a shortcut lnk file in windows, in the target you can specify arguments. Some arguments are relative to the app only (like for example the argument /showgadgets for when u run sidebar.exe). ~

But I guess windows has it's own set of arguements, to run an application minimized, run a file with a X exe, run an application minimized and so on.

I wanted to know where can I check a list for that -.-

Thanks ^^

Their is no such list because their are no Windows specific arguments. Arguments are application specific, always. However, to run an application minimized, the properties for a shortcut have that option under "Run".
