Windows 7: Adding Shortcut Parameters - Possible or no?

11 Oct 2009   #1

Win7 Ult 7100
Adding Shortcut Parameters - Possible or no?

Yes have searched extensively - I did find Brinks' Games Explorer shortcut which is lovely thank you =)

I like to run Sims 2 in a window. On XP and Vista you could for ex:

"D:\TS2 M&G\TSBin\Sims2EP9.exe"-r1280x1024 -w

to run in a window of a particular size. However Win7 rejects it as not being able to find the prog.

As per someone else's post I was going to try and edit the shortcut in

"C:\Users\yournamehere\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\GameExplorer\blah" however this expansion hasn't been recorded under gameexplorer so I can't try that.

2 questions plz... Can shortcut parameters be altered in W7?....and if so can someone plz tell me how? =)

I am running admin, UAC off - thank you muchly in anti-ci-pa-tion of helpage
