Windows 7: Edit Task command-line of a Pinned Taskbar shortcut

Edit Task command-line of a Pinned Taskbar shortcut

Good morning.

Is it possible to edit the command-line used in a certain Task when I right-click an icon in Taskbar?

I want to customize the command-line from Firefox "Open new private window":

I tried right-clicking it but it only shows me "Open".

Thanks in advance.

You can use JumpList Editor

Edit existing pinned taskbar shortcut jumplists or create your own. Here's my example. You can modify it to create your own Firefox jumplist and name "New Private Window" whatever you like.
