This tricks help you to create custom Run commands for your favorite applications or software. so that you can run that app from RUN.

Here are the steps for doing this:
  1. Open Registry Editor (from Start Menu > RUN and type regedit then press Enter):

    Go to the location:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\

  2. Create a new Key and name it as per exact executable file name of your app (example

    “windbg.exe" file for "Debugging Tools for Windows (x86)"). Remember to add .exe in the

    key name. The key name must be same as the app's executable name to avoid confusion.

  3. Then in the right pane change the value of the default string value named as "Default", to

    the address of the app's installation folder. The app's address must be direct and not be

    with environment variables. Example: C:\Program Files\Debugging Tools for Windows


  4. And create another new string named “Path” and changed the value to the location of the

    app. Example: C:\Program Files\Debugging Tools for Windows (x86)\

  5. Then close registry editor and issue the command in the RUN. These commands may not

    be executed from Command Prompt.
