Windows 10: Parameters not working on items pinned to taskbar

    Parameters not working on items pinned to taskbar


    I have several parameters I use on my google chrome shortcut to fix the DPI shown below.

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" /high-dpi-support=1 /force-device-scale-factor=1.05

    When I apply these parameters to my google chrome taskbar shortcut, the parameters are ignored. It only works if I start chrome from double clicking on the shortcut in the ...\User Pinned\TaskBar directory itself.

    I've applied the parameters to the chrome shortcut in this location - C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar

    I've done a log off\restart after doing this with no luck.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    You must change the Target in Properties of the Taskbar icon itself...

    then it becomes an Implicit App Shortcut, with the correct parameters at C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\ImplicitAppShortcuts\somefolder...

    Ahhh, gotcha. I had thought that taskbar icons lived in C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar this whole time. Never heard of this ImplicitAppShortcuts folder until now. That did the trick. Thanks for your help!
