Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

Where has the run command gone/how to show run command.

In Windows Vista and Windows 7 , the run command is hidden by default. This was probably done to declutter the start menu , but I like having the run command available as it does come in handy for more advanced users.

So , how do I get it back?

Right click anywhere on your startbar and select properties.

Now , under the start menu tab , select customize.

Now , just under the recorded TV section , there is a check box with the run command. Check the box and select okay.

Your run command will now once again feature in your start menu.

Please remember to rate this solution if you found it helpful.

Kind Regards
