Obtaining TargetPath of a shortcut without expanding environment variables

Hey guys, I have a shortcut with the following target:

%LOCALAPPDATA%\NirSoft\ControlMyMonitor\ControlMyMonitor.exe /LoadConfig "%LOCALAPPDATA%\NirSoft\ControlMyMonitor\Configs\Cinema.cfg" Primary

However, when using WScript.Shell to obtain the link properties, I see;

PS C:\Users\Fots> $wshShell = New-Object -ComObject WScript.Shell
PS C:\Users\Fots> $wshShell.CreateShortcut('C:\Users\Fots\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\NirSoft\ControlMyMonitor Cinema.lnk')


FullName         : C:\Users\Fots\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\NirSoft\ControlMyMonitor Cinema.lnk
Arguments        : /LoadConfig "%LOCALAPPDATA%\NirSoft\ControlMyMonitor\Configs\Cinema.cfg" Primary
Description      :
Hotkey           : Alt+Ctrl+3
IconLocation     : ,0
RelativePath     :
TargetPath       : C:\Users\Fots\AppData\Local\NirSoft\ControlMyMonitor\ControlMyMonitor.exe
WindowStyle      : 1
WorkingDirectory :

Notice that the TargetPath has had %LOCALAPPDATA% expanded to the directory.

Is there a way to obtain the TargetPath without expanding environment variables? (i.e. TargetPath should be %LOCALAPPDATA%\NirSoft\ControlMyMonitor\ControlMyMonitor.exe)

Huge thanks in advance!!
