Command prompt link in Start Menu

Hello,
I would like to have a command prompt link in the start menu along with the other habitual links
I don't use the command so often to stick a shortcut in taskbar
But when I need it , going to program--> accessories--> command...
I also don't use keyboard keys,doing all on mice exept typing
So,a little link in right pane will be most helpful for me
Thank you !

in the start menu type CMD

in the search result right click CMD.exe and then select Pin to Start Menu.

Is this what you were after?

Whilst you are at it, go back to Accessories > cmd (not the .exe), right click on cmd, go to Properties > Shortcut tab > Advanced > Check the box shown > OK > Apply (important). If you do not do that, you will always have to open cmd as admin because else cmd will do nothing for you.

You're welcome Pepito,

We all had to learn it before we could share it too, 7 is a great OS.
