Definition: Win Run command


All programs in Windows can be launched by name from the Run command line. You can run an .EXE, .COM, .BAT or .CMD program by entering its full name and path, or Browse the folder hierarchy to find it. Utility programs that come with Windows, such as the Registry editor (REGEDIT.EXE), do not need a path. For example, just type regedit and press Enter. See also Win Run As Administrator and Win Run As Different User. To retrieve the Run command line, do the following:

 Windows 7

 Windows 10
 Right click Start menu/Run or Windows Key+R
