Essential Run Commands for Windows

Most of the windows users are familiar with run commands. We often use run for different purposes. There are a large number of run commands available. Even I myself don't know how much run commands are available. Most importantly, run commands are subject to change and manipulation. So better you go only for the essential commands only.

Here I am gonna suggest you some important commands that you often need to use:

appwiz.cpl Add/Remove Programs
