    I created a small .bat file:
    Finally, the whole thing can be implemented without introducing a .bat file simply by creating a shortcut to
    cmd /C start "" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" <whatever chrome params you need>
    Configure the shortcut to "Run: Minimised" to avoid seeing the shell window opening and closing.

    AndreyT... this cmd solution works wonders for Chrome webpages that you don't mind opening to the site without the main Chrome application tabs, toolbars, etc., and it allows me to use my own icons on the start menu. However, for Netflix, I need the main Chrome toolbars in order to access the Cast... feature, to cast Netflix to the TV with Chromecast. Any ideas on how that could be achieved?
