I am using Windows 7 and I am looking for a list of the different parameters to use in the Target line of a shortcut in Windows Explorer.

For example:

  • /n forces it to open a new window, even if it duplicates a window that is already open.
  • /e uses Windows Explorer view (multi-paned)
  • /root,X restricts Explorer to showing only the contents of file folder X (and its sub-folders)
  • /select,Y automatically selects Y (either a file or folder).

What other parameters exist? I have been searching online and cannot find anything.

From what I can find, you already got all of the possible switches for windows 7 (source). What are you trying to do?
