    You probably got downvoted here because a) you posted a picture of text instructions instead of the text and b) you didn’t follow those instructions and right-clicked on your desktop shortcut instead – OrangeDog Dec 26 '19 at 8:53

There are 2 ways to do this.

1. Shortcut

  • Create a shortcut of the executable (it appears you already have one).

  • Right click on the shortcut, select "Properties", then switch to the "Shortcut" tab.

  • Add the option to "Target". In this case, replace -option with -nointro. If you need to enter more than one option, make sure each option is separated by a whitespace.

  • Make sure there is a whitespace between the path to the executable, and the option. It is possible the path is wrapped between quote marks ("). This is necessary if the path itself contains whitespaces. In this case, the "Target" would look like this:
    "C:\Games\Quake 2 RTX\q2rtx.exe" -option

2. Set Launch Options

If you're launching games directly from Steam or are using shortcuts created by Steam, this is the only option you have. From what I've seen, Steam does not synchronize Launch Options between devices, so there's no other reason to choose this way (besides preference, convenience, habit, etc).

  • In Steam, right-click on the game and select "Properties..."

  • Click on "SET LAUNCH OPTIONS..."

  • Enter your option in the next window. In this case, replace -option with -nointro. If you need to enter more than one option, make sure each option is separated by a whitespace.
