    Desktop shortcuts in Edge browser

    Please suggest how to open a certain webpage from desktop shortcut in MS Edge new window? All shortcut adding techniques I tried open the desired webpage in a new Edge Tab instead of new window, if Edge was previously open before the shortcut is clicked.
    Opening a shortcut in a new window is very important in a multi-monitor setup, where different websites are open in Edge on different monitors.
