How to Add Run Command to Windows 7 & 8

Subscriber Gary wrote me after a recent newsletter to ask:
Terry — your article about MSconfig made me realize that I have an issue:
I’ve had this 7 Acer laptop for some time, but I must have been using the XP desktop for
the Run command and for the DOS window.
I can’t find either of these on this 7. Is it right under my nose, or what??
In the case of Windows 7, I’ve previously written about adding the Run command to the Windows Start Menu. You can find out how in my article Adding the Run Command to the Windows 7 Start Menu.
Once you have added it, opening a “DOS window” command window is simple — in the Run command box in the Start Menu, type CMD and press the Enter key.
You can also set up a CMD shortcut in Windows 7, in the same manner as shown below for Windows 8.
