    I have a problem with shortcut to open a URL (It's not mainly related to Telerik web UI, but it could help)

    The scenario is 
    I have a website developed by Telerik AJAX web control, On the client side (User PC) I create a shortcut (contains URL) on desktop to facilitate opining the site.
    Suppose I'm using CHROME browser, I need to control opening the website (Single instance of the web site opened) means that, First time when user click on desktop shortcut it fires the browser (for example chrome) then open the website, second time or others time when user click on desktop shortcut (same shortcut) to open the website, It should retrieve the opened one if it opened before, If not then open a new instance (new browser tab) 

    Is there any argument can pass it to chrome or any way to satisfy this issue ?!

    Indeed, the requested shortcut related functionality has nothing to do with Telerik controls and such kind of configuration depends only on the used Operating System. For example, it could be possible to control the Windows shortcuts with arguments and VBScript but under other OSs, the approach could be different.

    That is why my suggestion is to contact your OS vendor or search in the Google and the OS related forums for information.
