Windows Run Commands

Windows Run Command - SeniorDBA

The Windows Run command is used to open an application or document whose path is known. It functions more or less like a single-line command line interface. It can help abbreviate the process of accessing a specific utility or application without having to navigate other menus or select from utility features.
