how to use win8, 8.1. 10 tile to start and to show FARR
« on: April 15, 2016, 06:26 PM »
If you want a win8, win8.1, win10 tablet tile to start and show FARR as an alternative to Break or Ctrl-Space.

Edit the Target field of the properties of the lnk file for the tile
C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\FindAndRunRobot.lnk
add the parameter    -show
it should look something like:
"\program path\FindAndRunRobot.exe" -show

Without the added parameter, you would get the message
Warning: Only one copy of Find and Run Robot (FARR) can be run at a time. Second instance is exiting now.
