I’m not sure why Microsoft thought it was important to remove the Run command from the Start Menu, but they did. Fortunately, they also gave us the ability to add it back to the menu easily.
In earlier versions of Windows, the Run command was on the right side, below the Help and Support selection. Notice that it’s missing in the image below.
That problem is easy to fix. Start by right-clicking on the Start button and selecting the Properties option.
That gives you the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties dialog box.
As indicated by the arrow above, click on the Customize… button, which will give the following dialog box. This is where we’ll make the change.
The entries in this dialog box are in alphabetical order, so scroll down to the R section.
Put a checkmark in the checkbox beside Run command. Then click the OK button.
That will return you to the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties dialog box. Click the Apply button and then the OK button. (You probably don’t need to click the Apply button also, but I do, just to make sure.)
As you can see above, now we have the Run command on the Start Menu.
