What does this mean exactly?

I'm probably being dim but could someone explain please how to do this:

"Just start the game with -console added to the shortcut command line."

Doing the above adds a cheat console to a game I'm rather hooked on at the moment but I'm not quite sure exactly what to do. I've opened the shortcut's properties and typed "-console" on the end of the target, which is what I assumed it meant, and I couldn't close the properties box because the target wasn't valid.

Anyone enlighten me please?

.../blah/mygame.exe" -console

Yup, cheating - but where do I edit that? In the game folder or in the shortcut or both?

In the target box for the shortcut but note that -console is outside the quotes.

I'm still getting "target not valid" finger-wagging, VoG ...
