    The "pre-releases" are Alphas. The update packages that everyone is using are Beta's. The last major fix, which was Threshold 1, was because there was a bunch of bugs in the software when the Software team was pushed by Sales and Management to get 10 out to the consumers and kill off 7 and 8. That was because Sales wants to try and be like Apple and have a seamless platform across multiple devices that can run various forms of Windows 10.

    At this time it is pretty much off subject about your original request.

    Imo you are using the terminology incorrectly. Subject closed.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    I tried doing exactly what you said, but after I do the Open file location step, what happens is that a new File Explorer instance is launched which views the folder that contains the tile program. There is (generally speaking) no shortcut inside that folder--instead, that folder contains the real program.

    It looks like the old Win 7 Start menu's Properties menu functionality seems to have totally disappeared, I am sad to report.

    If you open the properties for the executable you can change Start in there:

    If you install Classic Shell or Start10 then you will have Properties directly off the Start screen as you did in Windows 7.

    Forget my last post from 20 hours ago--I am an idiot!

    alphanumeric's solution is, in fact, correct.

    When you do the final step, which is select Open file location, that new File Explorer instance will view the folder that contains the tile's shortcut to the program. (My last post was wrong when I said that it was the actual program. I looked too quickly, and got fooled.)

    And then, yes, you can right click on that shortcut and the context menu will have a Properties choice.

    In my case today, I was then able to do what I want (supply some command line arguments to the program).

    As proof, I offer the attached screen shot with the Properties dialog having a modified Target value (ends with aforesaid command line arguments).
