    List of RUN commands

    Found this list of handy "RUN " commands for XP.
    Seems like a useful list to have around. 156 are listed.
    Also there is a link to 177 VISTA Run commands on the same page.

    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!

    That's a nice link, Bob, so Thanks! I'm always trying to remember how to Run something or other and this list will help.

    That's a useful list, thanks.

    I noted one error: Microsoft Access is msaccess.exe, not access.cpl (that is the Accessibility control panel).

    Re: List of RUN commands

    An alternate way to launch Paint: "mspaint" (the list mentions "pbrush"; both work for me).

    I like the "control printers" one a lot. Thanks, Viking!

    Re: List of RUN commands

    Great resource. Thanks Bob <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>.
    I thought it appropriate here to add this resource: Dx21 | RunDLL32 Reference, which I mentioned in RunDLL32 some time back. Also a great reference IMHO.

    Re: List of RUN commands

    Excellent, Alan.
    Always good to have a listing like that rather than hunting all over for one or two.

    Re: List of RUN commands

    Another one that's a neat little self-contained gizzmo is Windows in a box - <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>ware 175KB.
    Quite nice once you get over the aggravation of the rampant misuse of apostrophes in the Window<font color=red>'</font color=red>s references.

    Re: List of RUN commands

    If they can't get their plurals correct, can their software be any good?

    (This echoes the comment in the early days of Compaq, that if they can't spell their own company name correctly, can their PCs be any good?)

    The Lounge Pedant

    PS Alan: I suspect the red apostrophe indicates a wind-up, since you put the Window<font color=red>'</font color=red>s references not the Windows' references ? (And as for the use of 'aggravation'...!)
    <font face="Script MT Bold"><font color=blue><big><big>John</big></big></font color=blue></font face=script>

    > I suspect the red apostrophe indicates a wind-up
    Why? Is it's usage inappropiate?

    > (And as for the use of 'aggravation'...!)

    Re: List of RUN commands

    If it is the same software that Alan had in mind, I believe it can be downloaded here - Windows in a Box. The developer is "Big Daddy Design".

    Got it - thanks to you both for the replies. Boy, you're right about the apostrophe madness!

    It's great, isn't it? There's also the pro version called "John Gray Taunter for Window's' - Supreme". <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>
