List of shortcut commands?

July 17, 2009 at 09:59:43
Specs: Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 , Core 2 Duo E7400 2.8GHz / 3GB DDR2 800MHZ
Does anybody have a list or a link to a list of shortcut commands that work in Vista?
I'm talking about the -w or -r or what ever command you add after the quotes in the target section of the shortcut...

Right click on a shortcut, properties, shortcut, target...
the line would read:
"c:\program files\example.exe"
it would be what is added after that line to force different options when loading the program...
I'm not sure what these are called, but I'm not able to find a universal list that Vista has, just ones for individual programs that only apply to those programs...

Thanks.

There is no universal list
Each program has it own set of flags, options, switches how ever you wish to call them.

For example, here is the list for Word:

They are usually in the documentation, somewhere.

Was there any particular program that you were interested in?

Not a list on hand. I was trying to get some older Windows games to run via HDMI on a how theater PC either windowed or in a resolution that they don't natively support (The TV doesn't support the resolutions the games do).

If you have the doc's you might get lucky and find an option that will switch the resolution.
If you don't have the doc's a Google search might bring up something useful.
Also try some of the gaming sites relevant to your games. There are sometimes "hidden" options on programs that aren't advertised by the makers, but the gamers usually find them.
But I wouldn't hold out much hope.

Hey, I found out the solution to this problem, at least for me.

I'm playing starcraft on an HDTV myself have an HDTV hookup and the image always displayed as tiny, and I knew because of having an analog display before to the tv that it was possible to have a much higher stretched resolution.

I screwed around with my graphics options in the ATI catalyst(I have an hd4650) and clicked "Enable GPU scaling" in attributes.

I tried starcraft and it worked perfectly. Didn't have to have any target path options or anything. There is a small wall of an inch or two of black that the image doesn't scale to but that's because there isn't an option for overscanning while in GPU mode so it uses the default scan.

Hope this helps somehow. I'm sure there's a similar option with nvidia cards if you are using one.
