Hi fred,

thanks for joining up.

The Run menu option in the Start Menu is still there but probably disabled.

To get it back, do the following.

1. Right Click on the Start Button.
2. Select Properties
3. Select Customize.
4. On the Customize Start Menu screen tick the Run command option.

Now you should find the Run menu option exactly where it used to be with XP.

Tell us how you get on and if you have any more problems dont hesitate to get back to us.

regards

Steve

you can also use the windows key on your keyboard. Hold down the windows key and then press R on your keyboard.

if you are using the new start menu (not the classic) the run bar is right there at the bottom. It doubles as a search bar.

such as to run regedit, you would hit the windows key to bring up the start menu then just type regedit.
