Run Commands

Do you use the Run feature in Windows?  For most, this feature remains unused (or rarely used).  Why is that?   Well, First off nearly all of the Run Commands Correspond to a particular Control Panel Item or a Utility, Tool or Task that can be accessed through Windows. There are, however, tools and utilities that I bet you never knew you had that can be accessed through the Run feature. The main reason most people don't use the Run feature is because they don't know the Commands.  So, to solve that problem, I decided to put together the following listing, which lists some  of Run Commands and what they correspond too...
