The search works like the run box --also you can get the run window by holding down windows +R button simultaneously

Keep in mind that even though you can add the actual Run... button to the Start Menu, it is not necessary in Windows 7 ... as ded9 said, the Search box on the Start menu works exactly the same way - PLUS search abilities.  Just try typing in shutdown -r -t 100 in the search box to see (shutdown -a to cancel).
