What does this mean?

1.Make a shortcut on your desktop of the hl2.exe file in portal directory

2.Right click on the new shortcut and select properties and change the target to

"C:\Program Files\Portal\hl2.exe" -game portal -window -dxlevel 81 +mat_forcehardwaresync 0

I'm confused by "-game portal -window -dxlevel 81 +mat_forcehardwaresync 0"

    They want you to create a shortcut on your desktop to hl2.exe which is in the portal directory. Once you right click and change the target you'll be set.

    The target values "-game portal -window -dxlevel 81 +mat_forcehardwaresync 0" are "arguments" that the program is looking for. You don't need to understand what they mean, just copy everything into the Target textbox.
