    Run command missing from Vista? (XP SP 2)

    I ran across this tidbit and thought I would pass it along for what it's worth, even though I don't use Vista.


    I guess for security reasons 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 > left 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.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Hans,
    So I see.
    I just haven't been paying much attention to the Vista forum, since I don't use it. <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>

    Never mind - it doesn't hurt to repeat good finds! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
    I pointed to the other thread mostly because it mentions an alternative - using the Search box.
