Trying to use window mode, shortcut tab missing

    I have been trying to run a game in window mode for a while now without success. The method I use is to add the "-windowed" parameter to the game shortcut target line.

    The problem is that when I right-click the game's shortcut and click properties, the shortcut tab is missing, with only "general", "compatibility", "security" and "details" tabs visible (translations from Finnish version so maybe not totally accurate). Therefore I can't access the target line to edit it.

    Is there a way to make the "shortcut" tab visible?

    I am running Windows Vista, and this method works flawlessly with the game in question when trying on an XP computer.

    Have you tried making a shortcut of the shortcut? Maybe it might work if you tried it that way... Also many games also have a 'windowed' mode in the options... Maybe the game has one too?
