Well, in the icon I launch it from is the path to the executable, located in
the third tab of its properties, brought up by right clicking the icon.
There is not any reason that I know of that this path to the executable
couldn't be a script to set the options in one of the icons to disable the
plugins by a cli option I think someone posted just now. There may be even
simpler ways, but that is how I would approach it, while maintaining a fully
functioning version at the same time in the other icon. I'd also change the
icons name so you knew at a glance which one you were about to click on, but
that's a given one shouldn't have to RTFM to discover, just common sense.
