Start menu "run command" doesn't pass parameters

New Contributor

When I try to issue a command like "shutdown -r -t 1" from the start menu, I can briefly see a command prompt opening and issuing just "shutdown".

 

"-r -t 1" does not get passed onto the command prompt that opens. I reported this bug a while back in the Windows Insider program but nobody addressed it.

 

Does anyone have any clue how to fix this? Please see screenshots so you can understand what I'm trying to do:

 

Step 1. Issuing command in start menu

Step 2. Screen recorded showing command prompt quickly opening and closing and running "shutdown" command but clearly without parameters
