Where is the Run command box in Windows 8?

Question:   Where is the run command box in Windows 8?

Short answer:   If your keyboard has a Windows key, press on that key and also the R key.   The Run window will pop up.

Longer answer:   Tony John has a very informative web page on this topic which covers this and other ways to get to the command box in Window 8.    Tony John's page here.

For example, if you are on the Start window, just start typing RUN and the search box will pop up with RUN in it.

    • Hi Lara. I am sorry to hear that you are having trouble. Your description is so general that I cannot help you. You need a local IT professional to help you out. If you live in the Boston, MA area then let me know, otherwise you need to find someone locally to help you.
