A list of useful run commands

Windows "Run" commands help save time and help us become more productive at home or the workplace. The first thing we must do is open the "Run " dialog box, this can be accomplished one of two ways:

The first method is to click on the "Start" button and then click on "Run".

The second method is to use the windows logo key + r and the "Run" dialog box will automatically open up.
