### Argument to Launch PS with a Document Loaded

In Windows, I want to be able to d-click on the PS.exe shortcut and have it automatically load a document. I realize that I can d-click on an associated file extention but this does not address my current situation.

Most programs will allow you to include a 'file open' argument on the same line as the .exe (i.e. "...\photoshop.exe <DocumentFilePath>").

thx -dc

3. Press OK.
