Note: in case you don’t know, press “Win
+ R” on your keyboard to open the Run
dialog box, and enter any of the below
commands to access the respective tool.
List of Run Commands
1. “\” - This is one of the lesser known
Run commands. Just enter the backslash
into the Run dialog box and it will open
up the C drive. It is one of the quickest
ways to access the C drive.
2. “.” - This is yet another lesser known
Run command. When executed, it opens
the current user’s home folder which
hosts all the other local folders like the
Downloads, Documents, Desktop,
Pictures, etc.
3. “..” - When you execute these two dots
in the Run dialog box, it will open up the
Users folder which is located directly in
the C drive.
4. calc - If you want to quickly open the
built-in Windows calculator app, typing
calc in the Run dialog box is the easiest
way to do it.
5. cmd - Even Windows users have to deal
with the command line sometimes. With
this command, you can quickly open the
command prompt without administrator
6. powershell - If the command prompt is
too old for you, then you may want to try
PowerShell. Just type this command in
the Run dialog box, and you will have
your PowerShell opened without
administrator privileges.
7. netplwiz - The general user accounts
option is available through the Control
Panel, but if you want to mess with the
advanced user account options then use
this command to open the Advanced
User Accounts window. If you want to
deal with the Authorization Manager,
then use the Run command azman.msc.
8. gpedit.msc - Group Policy Editor in
Windows allows you to set and edit
different Windows policies of a local or
remote computer. Since Group Policy
Editor is an advanced tool, it is buried
deep inside Windows, and this Run
command is the easiest way to access it.
9. lusrmgr.msc - Using this command, you
can open the Local Users and Groups
Manager where you can edit several
properties of all the users and groups.
10. mrt - Every month Windows releases
a newer version of Microsoft Windows
Malicious Software Removal Tool
through the Windows Update. This free
tool helps you in cleaning some of the
most popular malicious software from
your Windows computer. This tool runs
silently in the background but if you
want to run it manually then use this
Run command.
11. ncpa.cpl - Being an Internet user
means that you have to deal with
occasional (if not daily) network
problems, and one way to troubleshoot
your network connection is by accessing
your Network Adapters. To access all
your Network Adapters, you can use this
Run command.
12. perfmon.msc - If you want to monitor
the performance of your Windows
computer and effects of the programs
you run, running Performance Monitor
will provide ample data. You can access
the Performance Monitor using this

range of power options to deal with your

Configuration window.
