    I've always used Windows + R key combination to launch Run, but sometimes I want to go to the Start Menu and click Run. I just found out that you can do that in Vista! Here's how:

    1. Right-click and click Properties on the task bar
    2. Click the Start Menu Tab
    3. Click Customize
    4. Scroll down and check the box that says "Run Command"
    5. Click "OK"

    I didn't know it was possible in Vista and I've been using Vista for years. The guides I've come across online always said that Windows Vista had no "run" button and they always suggested to use the Windows + R combination. I just found out that you can add Run in the start menu!
