You can run most programs from the Search programs and files that is just above the Start button after you press it. 

or

1.  Right click the Task bar and left click Properties
2.  Left click the Start Menu tab
3.  Left click the Customize button
4.  Scroll down and left click the box next to Run command to check it
5.  Press the OK button
6.  Press the OK button

Yes RKilroy is right, or just hit "Windows key + r".

When I try to download sites, it comes back open or save. This does nothing for me. I used to have the option to run and just click on it. Now it's not there. I used to have the run option plus open or save. Enabling the run button as you suggested does nothing for me to download or open sites. How can I get the run option back on that status line?

the open command on IE11 is the same as the former Run command.  However I highly recommend saving first, scanning the download for virus' and then opening.

When I click on the save option, nothing happens. I used to have the run command but when IE updated, it disappeared. Also, before I did a restore back to November and the run option was there. Once Microsoft did the updates, it was gone again.

As wing987 said you need to use Open.

Open Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) and press and hold your control (Ctrl) key and then press j . This will open view downloads, you view and track your downloads here. There is an options link to click on here at the bottom left, if you click it you can change the default download location, just browse to where you want it to go. Hopefully you can find your downloaded or saved files using this method.

I just updated to IE11 and tried this on my laptop before posting this and it worked great. What happens when you open IE11 and hit ctrl + j ?

Can you click tools at the top  (or the gear top right) and click "view downloads"? (this is what the hotkey ctrl + J should show you)

When I hit control j it shows the download screen but nothing is there or it shows partial download that is not complete and never finished running. I am not computer savvy as you can tell but I am grateful for any more suggestions.
