Dota 2 recently release the option to start your game in the Reborn Beta. Usually, to do this you have to go to your library and hit the play button in the Steam client for it to give you the option. When I run my desktop shortcut it doesn't give me an option and automatically opens plain Dota 2.
Is there a way to either make a new icon for the Beta, make the Beta default, or let me choose when I click the icon?
P.S: Shortcuts to launch game with different launch options in Steam does not quite answer my question. Also, I'm running Win8 if it matters.
