Execute the program with the START command - run START /HIGH APP.EXE - but I recommend running START /? from a command prompt to get a better understanding of all your options.

It is not that simple ! I have tried this before posting the question !
The pb is that my application is an exe file.

in the command prompt when I issue myapp.exe /high it starts then it gives me an error message high does not exist.....

my second issue is what to do then in the shortcut on my desktop !!!

thanks

You need to specify those details in the question.  Also, what OS are you running?

I just ran start /high calc (started calculator and that worked fine).

Start should work.  I just tried notepad.EXE, calc.EXE, and MySQL Control Center (mysqlcc.EXE) and all worked fine.

Are you doing this like I suggested:

START /HIGH app.exe

or are you doing this in the wrong sequence:

START app.exe /HIGH

If you do it with the /HIGH at the end, start assumes it's a parameter for app.exe and won't do what you want it to.
