1. The Run Dialog Box

The Run dialog box has been around since Windows 95. Think of it as a graphical representation of the Run command, which is a single-line command processor.

The Run dialog box is not the same thing as the Command Prompt, although it shares similar functionality.

This dialog box takes all manner of commands, and offers users an incredibly powerful tool.

To open the Run dialog box

• Press Image+R.

• Right-click or tap the lower-left corner of the Desktop, and select Run from the Desktop menu .

 The Run dialog box is a single-line command processor.

To run commands in the Run dialog box

Enter a command, and press the OK button or the Enter key to execute the command.

Use the Run dialog box to

• Open control panels by name. Type timedate.cpl to open the Date and Time control panel.

• Open a program by name. Type iexplore.exe to open Internet Explorer, type tskmgr.exe to open the Task Manager, or browse to find the program you want to open.

• Open the Command Prompt. Type cmd.

• Open a folder by entering a path. Type C:/Users/<User Name>/Desktop to view your Desktop.

• Open a network share. Type \\<Computer Name>\<Shared Folder Name>.

• View or change your IP address. Type ipconfig /all.


Tip

The Run command stores a history of previous commands in the Open drop-down menu.



Tip

If you need to have administrator privileges to perform a command, you will need to open the Command Prompt as an administrator; Run does not support this function. Right-click the lower-left corner of the Desktop, and select Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.



2. Closing a Program

In the tile-based interface, you don’t need to close programs when you move to another program unless Windows informs you that you are running short of memory.

Desktop programs consume more memory, so it’s more likely that you will want to close a program on the Desktop when you are finished using it.

To close a tile-based app

Tap and hold, or right-click, any tile-based (or Desktop) app thumbnail, then select the Close command from the context menu.

To close an application on the Desktop

1. Right-click the application icon on the taskbar to view the context menu .

or

Click the Close box in the title bar of all application windows.

or

Use the Close command on the Window menu (press Alt+spacebar to see it).

When the last window is closed, the application is released from memory.

To close any app from the keyboard

Make the application your current application, and then press Alt+F4.


Tip

Most legacy programs contain an Exit command on their File menu; you can use the Exit command to close a program. If there is any open window with unsaved work, the program will ask if you wish to save it.
