RUN command

By Roark83 ·
I've lost my Run command prompt in XP. I've searched Microsoft.com (knowledgebase,etc.) and they only have the answer to this for prior Windows OS but I tried the answer any way and it still doesn't show in my Start prompt. Any ideas?

I forget the Registry key to enable Run on the Start menu, but that is ok since there is an easier way:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/downloads/powertoys.asp
(please remove any spaces)

That takes you to the Powertoys for XP page. From there, download TWEAKUI, which is the tweak program. This is the XP version.

Install TweakUI, then open it up and it is in there somewhere. You can enable/disable all kinds of stuff. But from TweakUI, you should be able to enable the Run command.

hope this helps

CAUTION: this answer uses regedit!

Improper use of regedit can cause your PC to not boot!

It is 'best' practice to back up the registry before editing.

Open Windows Explorer.

Browse to the C:\Windows folder.

Find the file regedit.exe and run the program.

In regedit,
browse to the key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StartMenu\StartMenu\StartMenuRun\Policy\NoRun

Verify that the name in the right pane is default, and that there is no data in the data column.

Next, browse to
HKEY_Users\{a string}\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

(The string will be different for each user, and there will be several strings. Expand and check each string.)

In the right pane, there will be a number of keys listed.

Look at the key labeled StartMenuRun
The type should be REG_DWORD
The data should be 0x00000001 (1)

There may be other keys, or a group policy involved, but that should get you started.

You didn't mention whether you were on a network or not. If so, do you have administrator rights to the Computer? Or, are you logging into the domain as a user on that computer?
