Search bar in Start menu won't run programs
Posted on 2010-04-02
I've been running into a few computers lately, both Windows Vista, and Windows 7, Where the Search box In the start menu won't execute common commands, Such as "cmd". When the boxes were origionally setup, you could execute any command that could be recognized in a run box from the search bar. Common ones that I typically execute in this bar are: cmd, mstsc, services.msc, regedit, msconfig, notepad, and probably a dozen others. It's becomming an annoyance to actually navagate to the locations and I'd love to get this working again.
