How to Create Counter Strike Shortcut

Tips on Creating Counter-Strike Shortcut

Yesterday, one of my friends (Chris) asked me on how to create a shortcut to Counter Strike 1.4.x.

Here’s how:

1. Make sure that you have a full installation of counter strike 1.4.x.
2. Then right click the desktop and click the “add new shortcut”.

3. Enter the location of hl.exe or just click browse to locate it. (e.g. “D:\Sierra\Half-Life\hl.exe”)

4.  Change the name to “Counter Strike”. Then click Finish. Afterward the icon for Half Life will appear.

5. Right click the icon the change Target Field to: “D:\Sierra\Half-Life\hl.exe -console -game cstrike”

6. You can also change the Counter Strike  icon by clicking the Change Icon Button. Then select the icon you preferred.

Hope it helped you Chris.

  1. it didn’t work it says ,,The name C:Prog files (x86)cs 1.6hl.exe -console -game cstrike” specified in the target box is not valid.make sure the path and file name are correct” -what si this?!

  2. CORRECTION : The closing quotation mark must be right after hl.exe so it should be –> “D:Program FilesCounter-Strikehl.exe” -console -game cstrike
