I want to create a desktop shortcut on Windows 10 that opens a URL in new window.

I saw [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1287367|this] question but it is not working on my computer.

In step 1, I successfully created a desktop shortcut using [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/create-desktop-shortcut-website|this] guide.

When I right click the desktop shortcut, I see the attached screenshot. (I added "-new-window" at the end but it did not work, neither adding to the beginning of URL work)

What can I do?

You would have to use a copy of the Firefox desktop shortcut instead of a 'simple' internet shortcut if you want to add extra parameters.
An internet shortcut only specify the URL.
If you use a Firefox shortcut then you can add the URL and extra parameters to the target (command) line.

try just -newwindow at the end like you have it.

Also make sure you have quotes around the URL, then outside the quotes, put -newwindow -- I see that the other question you linked says "-new-window" so it might be Correct but the lack of quotes around the URL is causing it to not work, so try a couple different combinations

Thank you for the reply.

In the "URL:" box, I tried writing

https://music.youtube.com/ "-new-window" https://music.youtube.com/ "-newwindow" https://music.youtube.com/ -new-window https://music.youtube.com/ -newwindow

All gave equal results, opening the correct URL in a new tab instead of a new window.


When I put quotes around the URL and write "https://music.youtube.com/" -new-window

Windows automatically converts the text in the "URL:" box to: http://"https://music.youtube.com/" -new-window

In sum, none of these work. This opens a new window but not the desired URL.

This solved the problem. Thanks!

Since I don't have a desktop shortcut, I go to

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox"

and create a shortcut from "firefox.exe" to the desktop. In the Target box, I wrote:

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -new-window https://music.youtube.com/

and it worked.

The only downside of this is not having the icon of the target website, instead shortcut have the Firefox icon (which can be changeable with some effort).
