command at Run dissapear

By naturale02 ·
Can anybody explain to me why suddenly the Run command from Start menu can disappear? Is it i am running some cleaning process like delete cookies that cause the case? any idea to prevent it happen again?
thank you.

Right click on your task bar (not on START), and go into PROPERTIES > START MENU tab > and which ever type you are using (Start Menu or Classic Start Menu), click on ADVANCE of either one and make sure RUN (or RUN COMMAND) is clicked.
Hope this helps.
God bless.

Check Group Policies using gpedit.msc.

are you on a domain or is this a stand-alone computer? if on a domain, this could be removed by Group Policy or even the local Group Policy

I don't know why your Run command would have disappeared, but you can create this regsitry key to bring it back:


and should be a DWORD value where the value itself should be hexadecimal 1

Good luck
