FWIW - you can run any executable file (and many others) from the Run dialog as long as the files are in the "Path" set in the Environmental Variables.

So, you can run .exe, .com, .bat, .msc, .cpl, .msi, and a boatload of others from the Run dialog.

Now, if you type in the full path to the file that you want to launch, you can run almost anything that you want.

Add to this the file associations options - and you can run a bunch of other stuff. For example - type "www.bleepingcomputer.com" (without the quotes) and you'll end up going to the BC home page.

On a network you can even use the UNC name to navigate to places on your own network.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I have the Knack. **  If I haven't replied in 48 hours, please send me a message. My eye problems have recently increased and I'm having difficult reading posts. (23 Nov 2017)FYI - I am completely blind in the right eye and ~30% blind in the left eye.<p>If the eye problems get worse suddenly, I may not be able to respond.If that's the case and help is needed, please PM a staff member for assistance.

I wrote a little program that allows you to define a custom command that points to any file or program on your computer. It does this by writing a batch file to the system32 folder.

You can download it here: http://www.boredomsoft.com/batchfilemaker.html
