Run commands in windows

run commands in windows

A Windows 7 run command is, very simply, the executable for a particular program. In other words, a run command is the name of the actual file that starts an application.

Knowing the run command for a particular program in Windows 7 can be helpful if Windows isn't working properly but you do have access to a command line interface or if you'd just like to access a particular program more quickly.
