I want to run a game in windowed mode. I know that it works for this particular game. So I made a shortcut for the game.exe and opened properties, selected "Target", and typed:

"D:\Programs\Sims2\mansion\TSBin\Sims2EP9.exe" -w

However, after I click OK the computer is mysteriously removing the quotes. I can check this by re-opening and seeing that the quotes have disappeared. This is causing the windowed mode to not work.

Is there a way I can fix this?

The quotes are not necessary because there is no withspace between path names, so windows automatically removes the quotes around the file names ... They are not necessary ...

I don't think that your game doesn't start up in windowed mode because of the missing quotes ... Should be another reason ...
