    Unable to edit target location on shortcuts


    Good day team,

    This is my first ever post here. I have browsed all over the internet for an answer but I just can't seem to find it. I am an avid Simcity 4 player, and I alwyas have to edit the target location of my shortcut in order to modify some tings like: skipping the intro and establishing the proper graphics setup. But in this new system (windows 10) it seems impossible. I create the shortcuts, go to properties and then try to edit the target location but it seems to be grayed out and it is driving me crazy as I don't know why.
    I will attach two images of how it looks like to me. Hope this community can help me since the SC4 forums have not been able to do so.

    Thanks in advance and I am delighted to join this new community.

    Did you upgrade to Windows 10 or do a clean install? Have you tried creating a new shortcut to Simcity 4? I can make changes to my desktop shortcuts just like Windows 7/8.

    Actually I just bought the computer and it had it pre-installed so its not an upgrade. I have tried creating the shortcut directly from the icon (the only way I know) but it is the same problem.

    What else can I do?

    Are you by any chance running it from virtual disk/CD ?

    Noup, I bought the game from Oirign as a digital copy.

    By the way, I managed to do a script (*.bat) in order to create the target myself, and it works. It launches the game as I want it to. But regardless of that, why is the Target box grayed out?
