Show the Run command

The Run command is useful for accessing many of Vista’s advanced commands and functions, but it’s no longer visible by default on the Start Menu. While it’s easy enough to add it, in most circumstances you won’t need it. That’s because the Start Menu’s search box is a run box.

For example, in Windows XP to open the Registry Editor you click Start -> Run, type regedit and click OK. In Vista, you click Start, type regedit in the search box and press Enter.

If you’d like to have the Run command appear on the Start Menu nevertheless, here’s how to make it appear:

Right-click the Start orb and select Properties.
Click Customize.
Tick the Run Command box and click OK twice.
Another quick way to open the Run box is to press Winkey+R.
