Add Run Command To The Start Menu

If you're familiar with the Windows XP Start menu, you might realize that Run is missing in Vista. This is how you run programs by typing in the path to them. On Vista, Microsoft decided to hide this feature. It's still there, though. Just press the Windows Key+R and the dialog box will appear. However, if you want it to be on the Start Menu permanently, follow these steps:

 1. Right-click on the Start button and select 'Properties'
 2. On The 'Start Menu' tab click 'Customize'
 3. Check the box labeled 'Run Command'
 4. Click 'OK' then 'OK' again
