    Quick Question - Vista

    Chaps,

    Quick question that I've not managed to find an answer for anywhere else - does Vista have an equivalent to the Start-Run option found in most previous versions of Windows? If so, where do I find it, and can I add it to the start menu? This is driving me slightly nuts.

    Cheers,

    Tom.

    Also, if you use the start menu search facility you can hit the appropiate program and hit enter.

    Fab.

    That did it.

    Now if I could work out how to add it to the start menu, that would be great, because I'm bound to forget the keystrokes!

    Cheers.

    Re: Quick Question - Vista

    Found it. I'm sure it wasn't in the start menu settings - I've looked about 5 times.

    This time I looked and there it was.

    Either I'm thick (most likely answer) or it only appeared after I'd run it with Windows-R.

    Thanks for the help chaps.

    Tom.
