Adding a file pointer to a shortcut

If I have a shortcut to Notepad on my desktop, the target looks like "%SystemRoot%\system32\notepad.exe"

Is there a way to add a pointer to open a specific file when I click on it?

    Just add the location of the file at the end. For example, under Target in the shortcut's properties window, put this:

    %SystemRoot%\system32\notepad.exe c:\myfile.txt
