To to get rounds this you need to write a bat file for the task you want to execute, like if you want to find the IP address you would open notepad and type the below

@echo off


ipconfig /all




Save the file to the desktop as IP.bat, you can also see what services packs and updates installed on the computer using a bat file.

Hope this helps.

Are you trying to get a "Run" box" without the shortcut? "Windows" key +"R"
Get to Windows Update without a shortcut or typing in the address? in IE click "Tools" - "Windows Update"

If I try the shortcut I get access restricited by Administrator. BUT I am an Domain administrator. BUT this does not happen on all the PCs i logon to. just a handful.

Start Menu

by patb071 In reply to how can i get a run comma ...

Are they not showing up in the start menu? as local admin go to start run gpedit.msc Administrative templates - start menu and taskbar and double click remove run command from start menu and add the run command from the start menu. You may have a group policy that is disabling the run. I didn't see anything about Microsoft updates.
