I've got a user that when they open up Web Shortcuts on their desktop they open up Minimized. Of course I went to change that setting under the properties of the shortcut under the shortcut tab. However on his that tab is missing. it is there for shortcuts that go to installed programs like the one that I have a screenshot of here, however on Web shortcuts the Shortcut Tab is missing.
    It is the same for every user of that PC. Does anyone know how to get that option back?

Thanks

Take a look in Windows Explorer.

Tools --> Folder Options --> View.  Under Hidden Files and Folders, select "Show Hidden Files and Folders".

Good luck.

Web shortcuts only have the Web Document Tab.

Try opening the shortcut, and then duplicate it using ctrl-N

Maximize the duplicate window by using the resize arrows, NOT the maximize button.
Close the first window
Hold ctrl and select file>close on the second window

Now try to open the shortcut again to test.
