I use to start an application in windowed mode by creating a shortcut and specifying the resolution in either Target or Start in field.

I think one of the parameters was -h and the other one was -w but I don't remember exactly how to do it anymore.

Now I have a different program that I would like to run in the same way but I cannot figure out how to do it.

Can anyone help?

just create a shortcut to the executable and add the parameter you need in the target field

The parameter you need is, of course, different from program to program; some programs may not have such a parameter at all. – oKtosiTe Jun 23 '12 at 16:42
you can search on google for app parameters (usually in games is -w) – Remus Rigo Jun 23 '12 at 16:46
if we only knew what app is... – Remus Rigo Jun 23 '12 at 16:47
