While using computer in day to day life we open different application and windows tools by following different steps. But we can use the same application and windows tools without going through the control panel and menus.

This can be done by executing some commands in run window. Knowing a Windows run command can be helpful if Windows won’t start but you do have access to Command Prompt. Having quick access from the Run box is nice too.
