The part that starts with --profile-directory (in other words, everything after the double-quote character after chrome-proxy.exe portion) needs to be cut from the Filename field and pasted into the Arguments field of the Dock Entry Properties dialog box.

Make sure there isn't even a space character after that double-quote character.

Filename: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome_proxy.exe"
Arguments: --profile-directory=Default --app-id=adnlfjpnmidfimlkaohpidplnoimahfh

(Assuming I typed those correctly, that's what you need to copy and paste to the two fields.)

When I Create the Shortcuts as specified they are created; however, when I click the shortcut it always takes me to my Google Home Page in Chrome. Until about 6 months the created shortcuts would take me to the page/site where they were created. Then that stopped occurring and all-new shortcuts take me to the Home Page. This happens os all 5 of my computers. It may be something I did 6 months ago, but I don't recall what I did, and since they are all synced the situation replicates across all machines.
