How to use App Launcher for Internet Explorer to a URL

Post by rogueking »

How can I use the application launcher to launch internet Explorer with a specific URL?

I have tried the following but get inadequate results:

iexplore.exe http://www.cnn.com/
- Results: Clicking icon does nothing

iexplore.exe "http://www.cnn.com/"
- Results: Clicking icon does nothing

iexplore.exe "http://www.cnn.com/
- Results: Clicking icon renders site page with URL encoded double quotes with page error: http://www.cnn.com/%22

I have several web based apps I would like to launch but cannot figure out how to do it through the tool.
