Windows 7: How to make msconfig shortcut open at particular tab

How to make msconfig shortcut open at particular tab

Hi, can anyone help jog my memory for me please. I use to have a shortcut to msconfig and remember I had altered the path info in the target box to ensure that the startup tab displayed as soon as I clicked on the msconfig shortcut instead of the General tab.
Yes i know maybe I'm being lazy but despite saving an extra click it helped remove the extra irritation of having to do so as I make regular adjustments in the startup section.
Please anyone?

Good evening Berton and many thanks for the link. As soon as read the info it became a serious head slapping moment.
I probably wrote the info down somewhere but do you think I could find it? Clearly not as I wouldn't have posted the question. Thanks again you have saved me a lot of time.
