Following an exchange about Chrome's incognito parameter. Parameters in Link favorites are currently ignored when QAP launches the URL.

Solution to be implemented:

- if link has parameter, transform (internally) the favorite to the type "Application" and set the path to the default browser found in Windows registry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Associations\URLAssociations\http\UserChoice\Progid (for HTTP protocol)
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Associations\URLAssociations\https\UserChoice\Progid (for HTTPS)
returns a "ProgIdVariable" (for example "ChromeHTML", "FirefoxURL", "MSEdgeHTM")

returns the path to the default browser
for example:
  Chrome: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" -- "%1"
  Edge: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge\Application\msedge.exe" -- "%1"
  Firefox: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -osint -url "%1"

In the path, replace %1 with the URL and add the parameter.

This is available in the beta release v10.5.9.2 ( and will be in the next public release v10.5.3.
