The Start menu Search can help with this some but not enough.

I did not give up on this idea...I was going to write something to do this, worked on this for about 6 hours one night ... nothing worked correctly. I just thought of something now tried it and it did not work...then I got to thinking why doesn't windows have something built in for that...I search my machine for all EXE files and found where.exe. Works just like the resolve and it is built into Windows. -WS

C:\>where xcopy

C:\>where netsh

WindowsStar, thank you so much. That is almost what I was looking for

It does the same thing the Everything app does for me but still won't resolve commands built into the cmd.exe (Command Prompt). It's a keeper though. Again, many thanks. I'm going to copy it over as resolve.exe so I'll remember to use it.
