Vista: What Happened to the Run Command?

Recommended Posts

I guess for security reasons :shrug: the Run Command, by default, has been removed from the Start Menu (which doesn't say Start anymore, by the way--just MS flag symbol).

 

To put it back: right click on Start/Flag > right click anywhere on the window > Properties > Customize > scroll to Run and put a check in the box. I added my Printers back the same way.

 

In the Help section, MS says the Search option on the menu operates the same way as Run. Good luck with that--it did when I typed in wf.msc to look at firewall setting, but not when I tried to find Microsoft Management Console.

 

:)

 

Edit: oops, should be right click so I changed it

there's also a gadget you can download for the sidebar.

 

...or, you can hit windows key + r.

I haven't had any problems using the search bar in the 'pearl' menu... unless you need an elevated command prompt.

alternatively if you dont care to see the run option in start menu, i find its as fast to press windows key, type run and press enter

almost as fast as clicking the icon for something you may not use much

It is indeed in the menu for me. :shrug:

 

Menu, All programs, Accessories, Run.

 

Yours, indeed, is in the menu. Four screens away.

 

Mine is on the menu. Two screens away. Menu > Run

Right click on the Start button, and click Properties.

From the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties dialog, click Customize.

Scroll down through the list until you shall find Run command. Check the box next to it.

Click OK.
