I have seen on many applications that asks whether I have contacted professors regarding application process and all. Does this list narrow down the admissions chance because only these professors would decide whether to accept me or not. Or, does it show in general my interest in the school and particular research?

If I were to make a wild guess, perhaps if an application is borderline they will discuss your application with the professor you contacted to see if they were interested in you. Certainly it also shows a more directed interest but I can't see decisions being based off that. Most schools have a committee each year for making admissions decisions and I doubt they gather different groups of people together for each application based on who they contacted, so I don't think that's it either.
