Enable the Run Command

On a standard installation of Windows 7, the "Run" command is not enabled. This command is an easy way to access various functions in 7 as well as Concordia-Portland network assets.

How to Enable

1. Click on the Windows logo located on the bottom left-hand side of the taskbar. This will bring up the Start Menu.

2. From the Start Menu, go to the Control Panel link located in the middle-right of the Menu. This will bring up the Control Panel.

3. Switch to Classic View by selecting "Small Icons" in the drop down.

4. Click the Taskbar and Start Menu icon.

5. Click on the Start Menu tab then the Customize... button highlighted in red in this below screenshot. This will bring up the Customize Start Menu dialog box.

6. Scroll down to the "Run Command" checkbox located a little over halfway through the list and put a check in the box next to it.

7. Click "OK" then "OK" again, and close out the Control Panel. You've just added the Run command to your Start Menu!
