    Windows 11’s Start Menu doesn’t pass args to app

    by thrum-closure.02 ·


    Back on Windows 10, we could launch an app searching through start menu and we could specify args to it, which could be read by said app.

    Now, on Windows 11, we can’t anymore. I’ve developed an app which has a lot of automation on it, like, if I want to execute an action I would hit the Windows key and type app do this, the application app would have it’s first arg as do and the second one as this.

    I’ve verified that if I start my app through Execute (Win + R) my app reads the args just as it would on Windows 10, so, the issue here is with Windows 11’s start menu.

    Anyone knows if Microsoft dropped support for args on Start Menu or if there is an option to enable this function again?
