    Be sure to check this list out thoroughly as some of these shortcuts can be very handy and a lot quicker to open or start most programs.

    Even if you just use the 3 dots to open My Computer, this list would have fulfilled its purpose.

    Your files and folders need to be in their default location for these commands to work. For example if my documents is on another drive it will not find it unless you change the registry settings.

    To remove the history from your run window you need to clean all the values from the HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerRunMRU key in the registry.

    You also can put shortcuts into C:WindowsSystem32 and then type in the name of the shortcut in the run bar and it will work

    Sometimes when you put a command into the run window the Windows cmd window flashes and closes before you can see it. Try typing cmd /k before the command and the window will stay there. For example cmd /k ipconfig

    Try typing net use and it doesn't work. Then type cmd /k net use
