The “Run” dialog box from the Windows Start menu is a handy way to open an application or document. Usually you would select it from the Start menu, but a shortcut is to press the Windows key and R.
Once you’ve got the Run dialog box open, you can type in the name of a program and then Enter. Here are some popular ones:
- cmd: Command prompt for running DOS-style commands
- notepad: The Notepad app
- sol: Solitaire
- winword: Microsoft Word
